Ashkelon Mayor bars Arabs from working in city

Ashkelon Mayor Itamar Shimoni says he instructed to indefinitely discontinue construction at building sites across the city where Arab Israelis are employed, following Tuesday’s terror attack in a synagogue in Jerusalem.

Shimoni says he approached a Home Front Command commander and requested of him to halt the construction of bomb shelters in the city, as Arab Israeli workers are employed at such sites.

“In kindergartens where construction of protected zones is carried out by Arab workers, the building will be stopped at once,” Shimoni writes on his Facebook page.
