Interior Minister Eli Yishai called again for an investigative committee on the Carmel fire, in an Interior Committee meeting on Monday.
"I am not running from responsibility. No minister before me warned, fought and received," what was necessary to fight fires. "Now, it is the government's responsibility to approve the budget that I requested."
Yishai said that it does not matter how many times he warned the government - Shas voted in favor, but the government voted against buying firefighting planes.
