The Knesset Labor, Welfare and Health Committee canceled all of its discussions scheduled for Monday due the inclement weather that continues to affect the capital.

There was no immediate word if additional Knesset activities would be canceled because of the weather.

Among the discussions canceled by the Labor, Welfare and Health Committee were last week's incident in which an MDA blood donation stand was removed from the Knesset after volunteers told MK Pnina Tamnu-Shata (Yesh Atid), the legislature’s first female Ethiopian member, that her blood would not be used.
