The government will spend an additional NIS 47 million to house 436 families in hotels even while only 140 Gaza business owners have been reimbursed. On Sunday, the Ministerial Disengagement Committee authorized the additional funds to help those families in hotels who were waiting for their temporary abodes to become available or who were still struggling to find homes. Disengagement Authority head Yonatan Bassi and other officials also briefed the committee on the status of the evacuees with respect to compensation, employment, hotel stays and both temporary and permanent homes.
