Israel to Provide Funding for Transport in Judea-Samaria

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu (Likud) has ordered his staff to allocate four million shekels (roughly $290,000) to finance transportation to yeshiva high schools and girls' high schools in Judea and Samaria, he announced Tuesday afternoon.

Shuttles will be available to schools every Sunday and every weekend, to allow the safe travel of students from home to school and back.
