Opposition leader MK Shelly Yacimovich (Labor) on Thursday blasted a government decision to reserve 540 billion cubic meters of natural gas for domestic use – a 20-percent jump from previous government recommendations on Army Radio.

The proposed export policy – a contentious subject since the discovery of Israel’s copious gas supplies - will be paving the way for exporting approximately 40% of its currently discovered gas, rather than the 53% figure suggested by the Zemach committee.

Yacimovich told Army Radio that the decision was made “without any form of legalized process and without public knowledge over what is happening."
