Hundreds of Kiryat Shmona residents will be evacuated this week, in accordance with a decision made by the city's municipality on Monday night. The city was organizing lists of the people who will be evacuated - mainly the elderly, physically disabled, and those people that have not left their shelters since the fighting began 28 days ago. The evacuees are expected to leave on Wednesday, Israel Radio reported. Kiryat Shmona Mayor Chaim Barbibai said that the plan was not of evacuation, rather, of "refreshment." The evacuees' destinations had yet to be finalized with the director of the Prime Minister's Office.
