Bennett: Safety, Property of Farmers Has Been 'Abandoned'

The lives of Israeli farmers and agricultural specialists have become "hell" - according to a statement made today (Sunday) by Minister of Economics Naftali Bennett (Bayit Yehudi/Jewish Home), during MK Ayelet Shaked's preliminary reading of a proposed bill to toughen punishment for agricultural vandalism. "Many Israeli farmers suffer from the phenomenon of vandalism, which threatens their work routine and often their physical safety," Bennett declared in a post on his Facebook page.
