'We'll build casino in Negev,' says development minister

Deputy Minister of the Development of the Negev and Galil, Ayoob Kara (Likud), said he supports efforts to build a casino in southern Israel.


"Despite the disagreements on the matter, I am working to build casinos in the Dead Sea, Mitzpe Ramon and Eilat," he said during a conference for local municipalities.

Kara said that the casinos would help develop the Negev, and that the profits would go towards education. (Ilana Curiel)
