Following the cease-fire announced with Hamas, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Thursday appointed a team to deal with damages caused by Operation Pillar of Defense, Channel 10 reported.

According to Channel 10, Netanyahu appointed Prime Minister's Office Director-General Harel Locker to head the team handling the recovery of cities and residents affected by the rockets fired from Gaza into southern Israel.
