Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that the current government is "accomplishing things that haven't been done in decades. We have succeeded in lowering unemployment to it's lowest level in 30 years."
Speaking at the Likud faction meeting, the prime minister addressed the current social-movement protests, saying "the issues arising from the street are justified. Therefore we must tend do them without, however, causing damage to the business sector."We will act in two fields: one being addressing cartels and government and private monopolies, and secondly in the taxation system. It's good that this is happening now, these principal issues deserve our attention."
