Cabinet approves soldier education assistance bill

A bill granting benefits to discharged IDF soldiers to encourage them to study at institutions of higher learning in the periphery regions of Negev, Galilee and Judea and Samaria regions was approved by the cabinet on Sunday.
The legislation would provide one year of free tuition to discharged soldiers who study at an institution of higher learning in underdeveloped areas of the country.
"This is the least we can do to provide for those who guard our security day and night, especially now when we are obliged to unite around them," remarked Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in relation to the proposed bill.
