New Lines for Arab Workers Despite ‘Apartheid’ Criticism

The Transportation Ministry plans to add more bus lines for Palestinian Authority residents employed in Israel despite criticism over the first such lines. Israel was criticized by pro-PA activists, who termed the PA-oriented lines “apartheid buses.”

In fact, demand for the buses is coming from the PA workers themselves, says Transportation Ministry Director-General Uzi Yitzchaki.
