Israel's cabinet on Sunday approved a set of reforms intended to overhaul government services for disabled army veterans, following weeks of protests by former servicemen claiming that the current system had failed them.

The reforms took shape during extensive discussions between the Zahal Disabled Veterans Organization non-profit and representatives of the defense and finance ministries. They reforms include the allocation of 300 million shekels ($92 million) for the immediate treatment and rehabilitation of veterans of the Israel Defense Forces and defense agencies, “with an emphasis on post-trauma victims.”
