Interior Minister Eli Yishai will propose an unconditional NIS 700 million increase in funding for Isarel’s Rescue and Fire Services, his spokesman said in a statement Saturday evening.

Yishai said the government “should decide whether it wants virtual change or real change. The situation cannot be improved by ‘as if’ measures.”The proposal does not call for a structural reform or establishing aerial fire fighting capabilities.
