Defense Ministry Accuses Treasury of Creating NIS 4.5 Billion Hole in Budget

Officials say they agreed to a NIS 3 billion slash in military funding, but not a NIS 7.5 billion cut.

The Defense Ministry has accused the Finance Ministry of short-changing it by NIS 4.5 billion and is demanding that that amount be added to the 2014 defense budget - a request that is adamantly opposed by the treasury.
