20 Israeli embassies sent a letter to PM Binyamin Netanyahu demanded that he "intervene and save the Foreign Ministry," Israel Radio reported Saturday. Foreign Minister agents are reported to have said that the strongly worded letter is calling on Netanyahu to impose a solution to meet the economic strife of Foreign Ministry employees abroad. 

Many of the employees, as is written in the letter, are struggling to finish the month due to such low salaries. This, they said, has had a negative effect on their ability to work diligently in such a demanding work environment.

The Foreign Ministry has not responded to the letter.
