MK’s lash out over consequences of terminated Shabbat construction

Following the Political crisis over terminated railway construction on Shabbat, the Israeli political party Yesh Atid, opened an online website in order to help soldiers and the elderly reach their destinations when Shabbat ends Saturday night.

The initiative came after Prime Minister Benajamin Netanyahu announced on Friday that railway lines would be closed on Saturday night and Sunday for the purpose of construction. The closures are necessary to accommodate for the ban on construction during the Jewish day of rest. These hours are particularly troublesome for soldiers not to have rail service, as many of them are returning to base from their weekends home across the country.
