Interior Minister Eli Yishai continued to assert Tuesday that he was not responsible for the failures of Israel's fire services.

During a meeting of the power Knesset Finance Committee to discuss the Interior Ministry's budget for the years 2011-12, Yishai said that he has struggled to increase the budget for the under-funded fire services but that "when a minister struggles and his opinion is not accepted, and the government makes a decision, the collective responsibility is on the entire government."
