Speaking at a special cabinet meeting on the Defense Ministry budget, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that "this is a meeting on more than the priorities between the defense budget and other ministries (budgets) represented here, this is also a meeting on priorities within the defense budget."
"We must accept the historic changes occurring around us," he added. "The threats directed at the State of Israel are changing and we need to be prepared for that. We must ensure that the security the citizens of Israel benefit from will continue. (Attila Somfalvi)
