Labor MK Nachman Shai said on Thursday the new budget, which plans to combine tax hikes with ministry budget cuts, would “cause more damage" to Israel's growing deficit.

Speaking to Israel Radio, Shai demanded an "overall examination" through an official state inquiry to discover how Israel’s deficit grew so dramatically, and to “find out why no one saw it coming."
