Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz called State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss's detailed report on the handling of the Carmel Fire disaster "delusional and nonsensical to the extreme," Israel Radio reported Thursday.
Steinitz received a copy of the State Comptroller's report along with other senior officials that were audited, including Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Interior Minister Eli Yishai. Yishai also reacted to the report Thursday, saying the report claims he was actively trying to address the shortfalls in Israel's fire-response capabilities.
Yishai said that there were factual errors in the Comptroller's analysis, and that his office would work towards rectifying any erroneous conclusions.
