The Knesset Finance Committee on Tuesday approved the transfer of NIS 700 million to the defense ministry's budget.

Details of the additional budget will be presented at the Finance Committee and the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

The committee estimated that additional funds will be requested as a result of the unrest in Egypt.
