Yesha Council Complains About Channel 10 Report


The Yesha Council of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria has complained to Channel 10 Television and the Second Broadcasting Authority about a recent report entitled "Mehir Hamaahazim" (The Price of Outposts), which sought to look at state funding of hilltop communities in the region.

Citing reporter Matan Hodorov for relying on research by the leftist Molad Institute, the council's deputy executive director Yigal Dilmoni criticized the report for lack of documentation and distortions in Molad's research, as well as a double standard based on the location of the outposts. He stressed that Molad should not be used as the source for future reports.
