Druse cancel protest as government approves 5-year development plan

Druse and Circassian mayors canceled their second planned protest in Jerusalem on Sunday as the government decided to approve a five-year development plan of around NIS 2 billion for these communities.

“You represent an entire public that fights and sacrifices for the State of Israel,” said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“In my visits to the villages, in the meeting that we had there last year with community leaders, I was struck by the gap that had been created and which we need to close.”
