MK Herzog Criticizes Yaalon Over Reservists


MK Yitzchak Herzog (Labor) criticized on Thursday evening the decision by Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon to add 60 million shekels to the amount earmarked for paying reservists' bonuses for 2012.

"I call on the defense and finance ministers to stop this poor spin on the backs of the reservists. It is immoral to use reserve soldiers as a poor spin over the issue of the defense budget," said Herzog.
