The Union of Local Authorities in Israel (ULAI) called on Sunday for the government to secure educational institutions in the Israeli-Arab sector per prior promises.
According to ULAI, the government has failed to follow through with promises made in October 2011 to increase funding for a number of projects in the Israeli-Arab sector, including securing their educational institutions.
ULAI added that it and the local educational institutions under its umbrella have taken all necessary planning actions in order for a new security detail to operate and to secure their institutions.
Yet, more than half-a-year after the promises were made, the government has not provided the funding for hiring the new security details.
