The State Comptroller's report assessing Israel's Department of Defense was submitted today (Monday) to Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein.

"It is the Comptroller's job to look into our most sensitive areas.  After having been thoroughly checked, we can say that the results has brought to Israel more than just a small amount of respect and satisfaction," Edelstein said.

State Comptroller Yosef Shapiro commented, "I am most happy to be able to submit this report, which is separate from the customary annual report. This reports deals exclusively with the defense budget.  The public is certainly entitled to know where billions of its shekels are going."
