Report: More Needs to be Done to Prevent Domestic Violence

In a scathing report, the State Comptroller on Tuesday slammed the administration of several of Israel's largest cities, and had harsh words for the way cities deal with a number of issues – including how municipalities, as well as the Welfare Ministry, fail to act to prevent violence in families.

The report said that Haifa was still very polluted, and the amount of pollutants in Haifa Bay were dangerous to residents; that gas stations in Tel Aviv were under-supervised, and created hazardous conditions in the city; and that the city of Lod was weighed down by corruption and high crime.
