Jerusalem offers discounts to southern Israel residents

The Jerusalem Municipality announced Monday an array of cultural and tourist discounts exclusively for residents of southern Israel battered by Palestinian rocket attacks from Gaza. The benefits included free entrance to 15 cultural institutions in the city and 50 percent off entry to 20 others, as well as hotel discounts ranging from 25-50%, the city said. The city is also arranging outings in the capital, and hosting families who want to get away from the rocket attacks from Gaza.
