Cabinet Communique

Cabinet Communique
(Communicated by the Cabinet Secretariat)

At the weekly Cabinet meeting today (Sunday, 23 December 2012):

1. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made the following remarks:

"We are simultaneously dealing with three fronts. Today's Cabinet meeting
will open with the south, it is quiet there but we have loose ends to deal
with on the home front, with additional grants that we will give to people
and communities. By all accounts, the home front was dealt with very
successfully in the last operation.

Later today I will also hold a summary discussion of the home front lessons
from Operation Pillar of Defense."

We have also recently been witness to disturbances and attacks on our
forces. Later today, we will visit IDF Central Command in order to closely
monitor developments as well as the necessary steps to deal with each
possible scenario.

We are also monitoring developments in Syria, where there are dramatic
developments almost daily. We are cooperating with the US and, together with
the international community, are taking the necessary measures to prepare
ourselves for the possibility of far-reaching changes in the regime, with
implications for the sensitive weapons systems there."

2. The Cabinet unanimously approved a NIS 9.5 million plan to boost
assistance to residents of the south in the wake of Operation Pillar of
Defense
