Knesset to tour one of poorest Arab Israeli villages to help improve education

The Knesset Education, Culture and Sport Committee decided this week to visit the Arab village of Jisr e-Zarka next month in an effort to improve one of the country’s poorest communities.

The decision followed a discussion Monday initiated by MK Eitan Broshi (Zionist Union), who toured the community two months ago, and MK Ahmad Tibi (Joint List), who demanded that the government take a decision to specially deal with the town just as it has in Taiba and Lod.

“This community suffers the most from state neglect, mainly in the areas of education and housing,” Tibi said during the Knesset discussion.
