Arutz Sheva exclusive Developing the Gaza Belt Like Judea and Samaria


Former Yesha Council director and Binyamin Regional Council head Pinhas Wallerstein was called on to help develop the Gaza Belt communities, and has been doing so while staying at Kibbutz Nahal Oz even as it came under intense Hamas mortar and rocket fire.

Speaking to Arutz Sheva, Wallerstein recounted how Energy Minister Silvan Shalom (Likud), who also serves as Minister for the Development of the Negev and Galilee, asked him to help develop the Negev and Galilee in the way he fought to strengthen the Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria.
