Government ministries owe Magen David Adom NIS 3 million, a debt that threatens the continued existence of first-aid and ambulance services in the north and in Sderot in the south. MDA director-general Eli Bin assented to the request of Knesset Finance Committee chairman MK Ya'acov Litzman to postpone the closing of ambulance call-up points on the northern border and in Judea and Samaria, as well as a special mobile first aid station in Sderot. Bin said the security situation in these areas merited a postponement, but he added if the money promised by the government is not transferred in two weeks, MDA will have to close these services. Litzman promised to find ways to solve MDA's budget problems for 2006.
