Home Front Defense Minister Matan Vilna'i said on Monday that there is room in the defense budget for cuts. "You can cut the defense budget, but it must be done discerningly," he told Israel Radio.

Every big budget has pockets of fat, Vilna'i said, warning that harm will arise only if the budget is cut arbitrarily.

The Trajtenberg Committee report, which passed the cabinet in a 21-8 vote on Sunday, proposed trimming some NIS 6 billion from the Defense Ministry over the next two years.
