Interior Ministry may fire local council heads

Interior Ministry Director-General Ram Belinkov said that he was considering laying off local authority heads who were withholding the salaries of their workers and running their cities with a lack of financial responsibility, Army Radio reported. Histadrut Chairman Ofer Eini was expected to announce on Tuesday afternoon whether a general public sector strike would take place, based on whether the Finance Ministry managed to find a solution to the delayed local council employees' salaries.
