Activists take to Tel Aviv streets to protest gas compromise

Thousands of protesters took to the streets of Tel Aviv on Saturday night, demonstrating against Thursday’s security cabinet decision to advance a contentious compromise outline among government officials and natural gas companies.

As a result of Thursday’s vote, in which the security cabinet unanimously voted to deem the country’s natural gas development an issue of national security, the compromise outline will now be conveyed to the full cabinet for final approval.  Government representatives and the companies have been in disputes since December, when Antitrust Commissioner David Gilo’s announced that he would review whether the market dominance of the Delek Group and Noble Energy constitutes an illegal “restrictive agreement.”
