Vilnai: Rescue Forces More Ready than Ever

The outgoing Minister of Home Front Defense, Matan Vilnai, said Wednesday morning that the ministry had made significant progress. “In recent years we did a lot. We were limited by budgetary restraints, of course, but we have a plan to do much more,” he told IDF Radio (Galei Tzahal).

Israel “is more prepared than it was during any war,” he added.
