MKs Fume as Lapid Pulls Funds for Judea and Samaria


The Ministry of Finance froze budget transfers to Judea and Samaria again Tuesday. Roughly 563 million shekels ($162,173,276) earmarked for the Housing Ministry have been cut until further notice.

This move caused Jewish Home MK Nissan Slomiansky to rail against the Finance Ministry's 'circus.' Slomiansky announced in the wake of the funding freeze that he will not allow the funds to be used for other purposes in light of the last-minute decision.
