Sderot Mayor suspends himself as corruption investigation kicks off

Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal announced on Tuesday that effective immediately he will indefinitely suspend himself from his position. The decision came just one day after detectives appeared at city hall to search for evidence documenting alleged corruption among Sderot's leaders, including Moyal himself. Rabbi Oren Malka will act as temporary mayor of Sderot until the self-imposed suspension ends.
