Opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Wednesday evening slammed the coalition government passing the buck around over officials responsibility for the disastrous response to the Carmel fires.

"In a functional country, one that Israel should be, the state comptroller's report would be enough for those responsible to pay the price. We call this price resignation, and the responsibility starts from the top," Livni said. "This is only part of a dramatic correction process that the system needs to undergo."

 She continued, "And already now we know it will not happen" based on the government's response to the comptroller's report.
