About 60 Knesset members signed a letter demanding that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu bring the issue of determining gas export allocations to the Knesset, at an emergency session of the Social-Environment Lobby on Wednesday.

"The decision on the issue of exporting the gas  from reservoirs discovered near Israel's coasts bears far-reaching economic, social and environmental implications," said the letter, written by MK Dov Henin (Hadash), chairman of the Social-Environment Lobby. "The issue is a weighty one, and it should be discussed and ultimately decided by the hands of the Knesset, in the framework of a comprehensive and transparent public and professional discussion."
