The cabinet gives its stamp of approval to the extension of some 14,000 Ukrainian refugees’ humanitarian aid.
A statement says the funds for the aid were secured by cutting 0.06% of all ministry budgets for 2023.
The aid will see the refugees’ health insurance and social assistance benefits extended until the end of the year.
The cabinet will review further extension of the measure at a later date.
The government had said Thursday it had been unable to renew aid for Ukrainian refugees due to a lack of funding, in response to a High Court petition on the matter. This came after it had vowed to extend benefits after a two-week lapse.
Ukrainian officials have repeatedly criticized Israel throughout the war over its treatment of Ukrainian visitors.
