The rehabilitation program of wounded IDF veterans is plagued b failures, Haim Bar, Chairman of the Zahal Disabled Veterans Organization said on Sunday.
Addressing President Reuven Rivlin at his residence during an event to mark IDF soldiers injured in the line of duty, Bar said, "Mr.
president, the defense minister, while serving as deputy prime minister and minister for strategic affairs, said that rehabilitating disabled IDF veterans is an important component in national security.
On this day specifically, when the Israeli people and youth movements honor those wounded in Israel's wars, we are exposed to failings in the rehabilitation of injured veterans." Bar cited difficulties faced by wounded veterans, adding, "I am sure that this is not what the defense minister meant in his speech."
