NIS $11M allotted for Israeli ops in West Bank
Knesset appropriates funds for relocation of settlements; hesder yehsivas

The Knesset's Finance Committee approved funds amounting to NIS 11 million ($2.76 million) for various Israeli operations in the West Bank.


In a Monday budget meeting held shortly after the vote on the new economic measures, the committee approved NIS 8.3 million ($2 million) for settlement relocations in the West Bank, out of which NIS 2.7 million ($680,000) were appropriated for "settlement infrastructure."


The Civil Administration was allotted NIS 12.4 million ($3.15 million) for the employment of officers and inspectors across the West Bank.


An additional NIS 5 million ($1.26 million) were allotted to hesder yeshivas and NIS 2 million ($500,000) for the "reinforcement of security measures in West Bank communities."


The latter was a result of a coalitional deal between the Likud and Habayit Hayehudi.
