Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Monday at the beginning of the weekly cabinet meeting that the last two weeks in which the government was working to secure the release of Gilad Schalit were "out of the ordinary," but now it was time to "continue to work hard at the many challenges facing us and get back to routine."

The prime minister stated that following the government's approval of the Trajtenberg Committee's recommendations two weeks ago, in the coming weeks decisions would be made that would lower the cost of various items.

"The socioeconomic revolution will lower the price of the cost of living," Netanyahu stated. "A great deal of the government's work will be devoted to this issue in the next two weeks," he added.
