Peace Now attacked the government on Sunday, claiming that it was investing millions in infrastructure in the Palestinian territories at the expense of infrastructure inside the Green Line. In a new report, the organization cited six roads currently under construction in the West Bank, at a total cost of NIS 300 million. The group claimed that these roads would allow for relatively fewer cars than before. According to Peace Now's calculations, the government was investing NIS 50,000 per car in the West Bank. In response to the report, the Council of Jewish Communities of Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip contended that West Bank roads were not safe, and that six people had been killed in road accidents in the area since the beginning of the year.
