Homefront Defense Ministry Authority to Defense Office


The cabinet approved, Sunday afternoon, the recommendation of former Homefront Minister Gil'ad Erdan to close the ministry and transfer its authority to the Defense Ministry.

Erdan said that given the circumstances involving disputes over budget and jurisdiction, this was the proper short-term solution, adding that another long-term solution should be created to create a civilian office with authority.
