Hearing on Cancellation of Peripheral-Housing Funding

The Knesset Economics Committee is meeting, Monday morning, to discuss last month's decision by the cabinet to cancel funding of a 60,000-shekel benefit for young families who purchase their first home in a peripheral area.

Thousands of families bought land in peripheral areas based on anticipation of the aid and have been left without further funding for their homes.
