The Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Subcommittee for Home Front Preparedness will hold a meeting next Monday, following the wave of earthquakes this week.

Subcommittee chairman Eli Yishai said the earthquakes "require a thorough examination the country and the home front's readiness for any scenario that could occur as a result of earthquakes. We cannot ignore this phenomenon."

Yishai added that the subcommittee will point out shortcomings in the way the government deals with the issue and demand they be fixed.
