Ministers Strongly Oppose 'Scandalous' Budget Cut

Tensions are boiling over ahead of a ministerial vote Sunday morning on whether or not to ratify a 1.9 billion shekel (roughly $531 million) budget cut, namely 2% of the budget, to fund Operation Protective Edge and provide a 1.3 billion shekel five-year-plan to develop hard-hit Sderot and the Gaza Belt communities.

Ministers from left to right have been pouring criticism on the budget cut and vowing to oppose it.
