Kadima and Meretz decided on Tuesday to cancel a special session of the Knesset that had been planned for Wednesday to debate Sunday's cabinet decision to move a proposed new emergency room planned for Ashkelon's Barzilai Medical Center due to graves found on the site.

The opposition decided that there was no reason to convene the Knesset during its spring recess after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu instructed his director-general Eyal Gabai to head a task force that would reconsider the decision following public outcry over the issue.

The Knesset's State Control Committee, headed by Kadima MK Yoel Hasson, will still hold a hearing on the matter on Wednesday with State Comptroller Micha Lindenstraus.
