MOD creates new system for disabled IDF veterans

October 8, 2006 17:38

The Defense Ministry decided to launch a special system for preparing soldiers who were wounded in the latest war in Lebanon for a committee that would establish the "disability degree" of each soldier and in turn, decide what reparations they would receive. Head of the ministry's Rehabilitation of Disabled Veterans Department, Brig. -Gen. (retired) Roni Morano, said that each wounded soldier that formally stated he was disabled would receive appropriate reparations. Morano, positive about the new system, said that soldiers would not have to go through the regular process of receiving aid. "We have created an automatic path to receiving monetary benefits without [soldiers] having to pay for lawyers that would represent them in court."
