Lapid: I'll Quit the Government if Taxes Are Raised


Finance Minister Yair Lapid declared on Wednesday that he would quit the government should taxes be raised following Operation Protective Edge in Gaza.

"Israeli citizens will not be required to pay more taxes following Operation Protective Edge,” Lapid told Channel 2 News, adding, “I will not sit in a government that once again reaches into the pockets of the citizens of Israel when there's no real need for it."
