For the second time in less than two years President Shimon Peres will have to vacate the Presidential Residence and move to alternative accommodations. This follows the complete collapse of infrastructure in the presidential complex.

The situation is such that in the private residence of the president, water leaks from the ceiling, the floors, the walls and through the electric wiring. Tiles and floorboards have been dislodged and there is no hot water for Israel's number one citizen to take a shower.

Peres will move to David's Village in Jerusalem on January 1 and it is anticipated that he will remain there for at least four months.
