Knesset Committee Focuses on War and the Elderly

The Knesset's Labor and Social Affairs Committee held a special session Tuesday, in a discussion on building a framework for preventing elder abuse - including during times of war. 

Committee chairman MK Haim Katz (Likud) told the committee, "Today we bury our dead and continue to fight for the right to live a normal life in this country... Everyone, including the elderly, has the right to live peacefully," Katz continued. "A discussion on them and their needs cannot wait."
