Meska: Govt's 'Cheapness' on Yesha Buses Will Now Cost Billions


In the wake of the kidnapping of three Israeli teens who were apparently taken prisoner when they tried to hitchhike a ride in Gush Etzion, new security measures will be taken to ensure the safety of travelers in Judea and Samaria. The new measures include the installation of cameras at main pickup points in Judea and Samaria, the dispatching of army patrols to keep an eye out for the safety of hitchhikers, and a major capital investment in the public transportation system in Judea and Samaria.

That, said Samaria Council chairman Gershon Mesika, is an excellent example of “penny wise, pound foolish.”
