Subc'tee Told of Dangerous Condition of Yesha Buses


Officials from Judea and Samaria told the Knesset subcommittee on the region, Tuesday that buses used for transporting children had safety issues. Speaking at a hearing on reinforcing the buses against attacks, Deputy Chairman Moshe Saville of the Gush Etzion Regional Council told the panel that the region's buses were old, a message echoed by Dov Diener of the Binyamin Regional Council.

Money from the 2011 budget to address the anti-attack protection has never been transferred because of a disagreement between the Treasury and the Defense Ministry. Shomron (Samaria) Regional Council Director Gershon Mesika said that a scandal and called on the sides to resolve their differences in order to enable the transfer. The subcommittee scheduled another meeting on the matter.
