Iscar deal sparks interest in Galilee development

Following the record-setting $4 billion purchase of the Wertheimer family's Iscar metalworking company by American businessman Warren Buffet, some 400 families have decided to move to the Galilee, Israel Radio reported. The Negev and Galilee Development Authority reported on Monday that since the Iscar deal was announced, three times as many inquiries on housing and business opportunities in the Galilee have been received as usual.
