The Ministerial Committee for Legislation approved on Sunday a bill to update the penalty for burning an Israeli flag of 300 lira, worth about 10 agorot in a currency no longer in use, to NIS 50,000.

The bill by MK Nava Boker (Likud) would also increase the possible prison sentence for burning a flag from one year to three.
