Ashdod Mayor: Start of School Year Not Set in Stone


Ashdod Mayor, Dr. Yechiel Lasry, said after arriving at the site of a kindergarten hit by rocket fire on Tuesday that “The 1st of September is not set in stone and we can delay the start of the school year.”

Lasry said that “I do not intend on opening the school year… the Iron Dome does not protect everything and everywhere.” Lasry's statement has not been altered since the start of the ceasefire, as many southern authorities are skeptical as to whether the truce will last.
