Ya'alon: Any Reduction in Defense Budget Will Be to Israel's Detriment


Minister of Defense Moshe Ya'alon spoke this evening (Thursday) about the governmental across-the-board budget cuts and the increase in defense spending.

"Any cut to the defense budget will be to the detriment of the State of Israel, and bring us to a point that we should never arrive at," Ya'alon said.

"We should never allow ourselves to get to the point where we will look back in regret at the fact that our lack of investing in our defense now will be the cause of a heavy price that we will pay for later," he added.
