Gov’t to Declare Allocation of Benefits Following Gaza Op.


The government will declare on Sunday morning which southern communities will be awarded benefits following Operation Protective Edge.

Communities belonging to the Gaza Envelope are expected to be compensated with 1.5 billion shekels over the next five years, but Ashkelon, Ashdod, Ofakim and Be’er Sheva seem to have been left behind despite having been harshly hit by rocket barrages throughout the operation.
