Government extends funding for Gaza border area evacuees’ hotel accommodation for 2 months

The government announces that it has extended the stay of evacuees from Gaza border towns in hotels and in temporary housing funded by the state until August 15.

The announcement says that around 70 percent of the residents of the Gaza Strip border area have returned to their homes over the past few months.

Many of those who have not yet returned home were residents of the communities hit hardest in the October 7 onslaught.

“As part of the decision, the directorate will regulate the format to determine the return dates for communities to their homes, in coordination with the Finance Ministry and in consideration of the security and rehabilitation conditions,” says the statement from the Prime Minister’s Office and the Tekuma Authority, the government body responsible for rehabilitating the 20-plus border communities affected by October 7.
