NIS 2.5 Million for Vehicle Protection in Yesha


It was announced, Tuesday, that the Knesset Subcommittee for Judea and Samaria has obtained budgets from the Defense and Finance Ministries to protect private vehicles in Judea and Samaria against terror attacks. Transfer of the funds is expected in two weeks, which will allow the issuing of a bid for reinforcement of vehicles against stonings.

Adva Biton, whose daughter survived critical injuries but remains paralyzed as a result of a rock attack, told the committee that stonings are like shootings and that vehicle protection saves lives.
