Labor Faction head Yoram Marciano on Tuesday called for the immediate amendment of the compensation bill for Gush Katif evacuees, which was proposed by MKs Uri Ariel (NU/NRP) and Coalition Chairman Avigdor Yitzhaki (Kadima). Marciano said during a discussion on the bill that it was wrong to "draw out the suffering of the children and adults who were evacuated from Gush Katif any more than the suffering caused to them in the last year." He added that "the Israeli government has behaved disgracefully toward Gush Katif residents ever since the evacuation. The entire Labor faction supports the amendment of [this] bill." If approved, the amendment would increase compensation for evacuees by nearly NIS one billion.
