Deputy Defense Minister finds out mid-speech bus segregation was suspended

Deputy Defense Minister Eli Ben-Dahan was surprised mid-speech defended segregated buses for Israelis and Palestinians Wednesday, only to find out that the policy was put on hold.

Ben-Dahan took the stand in the Knesset to answer a query by MK Oren Hazan (Likud) about security arrangements on public transportation, when MK Tamar Zandberg (Meretz) told the Deputy Defense Minister about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon’s change in policy, which was made public shortly before the speech.
