Chetboun Warns Against Defense Budget Cut

MK Yoni Chetboun (Jewish Home) warned on Monday against a planned massive cut in the defense budget.

"This is no longer about headlines or press releases from interested parties, this is serious. Cutting training for reserve fighters is risky business," Chetboun wrote on his Facebook.

He added that over the past month he has received dozens of inquiries from reserve battalion commanders whose training had been cancelled and said, “This is serious and it's dangerous.”
