Calls For Gov. Regulation Following Gas Explosions


Member of Knesset Uri Maklev (United Torah Judaism) called for greater supervision and regulation in domestic gas usage on Wednesday. Gas canisters, common in home use for stoves, were blamed for a deadly explosion in January in the Gilo neighborhood of Jerusalem, and a second explosion this week in Akko. "Dozens of homes in Gilo are still in the same condition as they were immediately after the blast. In Netanya, where a gas explosion occurred about three years ago, apartments have still not been restored," MK Maklev stated.
