"Judea and Samaria Treated like Second Class Citizens"


Member of Knesset Moti Yogev (Bayit Yehudi), Chairman of the Subcommittee for Judea and Samaria, convened a discussion on Tuesday regarding the lack of cellular reception throughout Judea and Samaria. "This reality of wireless coverage gaps throughout Judea and Samaria cause security implications and consequences for human life," MK Yogev stated. He explained that in acts of terrorism and car crashes, it has not been possible to call and alert rescue forces and the army. Shomron Regional Council head Gershon Mesika said, "It is inconceivable that they treat us as second class citizens."
