Binyamin governor Yisrael Gantz is calling on representatives of Yamina and New Hope to block the Minister of Transportation’s plan to cut the road development budget by 50% and cancel several transit initiatives in Judea and Samaria.
‘Just as we predicted, this budget cut will fatally harm development in the area and threaten the human and civil rights of the residents here. The government has been promoting initiatives to try and bridge the many gaps in our infrastructure for two years, but now their work is threatened. This move will make settlements in Judea and Samaria dry up and die. This is going to be 2021’s disengagement plan. It can be stopped though, and I call on MKs Elkin, Haskel, and Silman to do so immediately.”
