Lapid Lauds Dimona Mayor, Despite Damning Unemployment Data

Lapid claims 'unemployment rates decreased' during the tenure of Meir Cohen - who is on his ticket for Knesset election - but official data indicates they actually rose.

Twenty-four hours after the Kitan textiles factory in Dimona laid off its last workers, political hopeful Yair Lapid praised Mayor Meir Cohen's success in fighting unemployment.
