Gal-On to Treasury: Present settlement budget figures

Meretz chairwoman Zehava Gal-On on Thursday demanded that the Finance Ministry present detailed budget items earmarked for West Bank settlements to the Knesset Finance Committee in the wake of media reports on the topic.
"The reports raises serious suspicions that the government is giving budgetary priority to residents of the settlements and discriminates between residents of Judea and Samaria and the rest of Israeli citizens," Gal-On said.According to numbers from the Central Bureau of Statistics, she continued, the state's "investment in settlement residents is 80 percent larger than the investment in other citizens."
