Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday not to raise water taxes by 3%, as planned for January 1st.

The tax would be a heavy burden on a public already dealing with a spike in housing and food prices, Yacimovich said. She linked the tax increase to the creation of local water corporations, which she called another step on the path to privatizing the water market.
