Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said at a Ministry of Defense conference: "The Home Front Defense Ministry is a waste of tax payers' money. A good result will not emerge from this.
"We saw it in the snowstorm. Who was able to function? Betzalel Triber and Dan Harel and other people in the Ministry of Defense, and the Home Front Command. The entire IDF was managing this thing." (Yoav Zitun)
