Labor MK: Government Investing 'Too Much' in Judea and Samaria

MK Stav Shafir (Labor) launched a scathing attack on the Israeli government on Saturday night, over its investment in Judea and Samaria.

Shafir said that she had investigated the requests for changes in the budget during the Knesset's winter session and found that 598.8 million shekels were transferred to Judea and Samaria. This money, she claimed, came at the expense of funds being allocated to building in other areas in Israel.
