Continued Hunger Strike Outside Prime Minister’s Residence for Security Against Arab Terror
“We will stay on sidewalk until Netanyahu comes to his senses.”
The families and council heads are protesting the government’s failure to fulfill its promises to provide funding for necessary security upgrades in Judea and Samaria.
“There are very important people here, widows and people who have stopped everything who are staying here on this sidewalk just so that the man behind the curtain (the prime minister) will come to his senses and understand that the struggle and responsibility for the security of the state and for its citizens is his,” Hazan said.
Hazan said that Coalition Chairman David Bitan is attempting to mediate between the sides to find a budget for security upgrades and new bybass roads in Judea and Samaria. “I hope we will see the light at the end of the tunnel. I hope that they will soon transfer 600 million shekels ($170 million) instead of 200 million ($57 million). We don’t want [empty] promises. We want promises which are fulfilled.”
