In an official statement released Wednesday, the PM's office has allocated funding to allow the continuation of activities at the Kiryat Shmona cultural center, library and auditorium. 

The decision will be submitted for cabinet approval at its next meeting.

According to the decision, NIS six million in government assistance will be allocated to community centers in areas near borders and in towns under threat, which have become insolvent. 

The goal of this support is to allow bodies such as the  Kiryat Shmona community center to resolve their debts and continue to benefit residents through educational and cultural services.
