Peres: I am proud of authorities' performance thus far
President Shimon Peres said that he supports the security forces and Israel Electric Corporation workers and is concerned for those still disconnected from electricity and other infrastructure. He added: "I'm not suggesting covering up the criticism if it exists, but I am proud of the authorities' work until now."


Peres described the storm's implications for the President's Residence: "At the President's Residence we too turned into a 'little kibbutz.' Security personnel slept on the office floor and we all shared the food during Shabbat." (Noam 'Dabul' Dvir)
