Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday held in Tiberias the first meeting of the ministerial team on Tiberias affairs.
Netanyahu said, "I think that linking Tiberias, the Galilee and the Negev with the center of the country, and also making the center more accessible to the Galilee and the Negev, will further help reduce the gaps in Israeli society and also raise us all upward, like the level of the Sea of Galilee."
He added, "By the way, this may sound strange but the state’s desalination policy also helps raise the level of the Sea of Galilee. There is a saying that the level of the Sea of Galilee reflects the national mood. At the moment, it is on the rise and we will see to it that it continues to do so.”
