Israel Cabinet Passes “Full Protection”

In light of the ongoing attacks on civilian areas near Gaza, and the advancement of aggression by terrorist elements against the 200,000 person-strong ancient biblical city and modern-day metropolis of Be’ersheva, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s cabinet issued the following statement through the Government Press Office:

“The Cabinet, today (Sunday, 28 October 2012), unanimously approved Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s proposal on full protection for all communities 4.5-7 kilometers from the Gaza Strip, at a cost of NIS 270 million. The Cabinet also authorized the Prime Minister to decide, within 30 days, on the sources of financing without the need to submit the issue for Cabinet approval.

Prime Minister Netanyahu said: “This will provide security for residents of the south. We are doing this because attacks by rockets and missiles at shorter distances are much greater in the area around the Gaza Strip than at other distances. I think that this is what residents of the south have been hoping for, they have been calling for it for a long time.””
