MK Danny Danon, chairman of the Knesset Children's Rights Committee visited the elementary school in the Jewish community of Yakir, located in Samaria, to witness the consequences of the construction freeze on the young boys and girls.

The local representatives explained to the visiting MK that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's statement that public buildings will be able to be built does not make things easier since every construction project needs the approval of the Defense Minister.

Danon told Arutz Sheva TV that this issue is agreed upon by members of the committee from both the right and the left - "politics can't be at the expense of the children."
