Israel extends benefits to Holocaust survivors from Arab states

Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon tells the head of the Holocaust Survivors’ Rights Authority that he intends to extend the payment of benefits to survivors from Iraq, Algeria and Morocco, Channel 2 reports.

The benefits are to be given to Jews from Algeria and Morocco who suffered from anti-Semitism between 1940 and 1942, and to Jews from Iraq who were targeted in the “Farhud” pogroms in Baghdad in June 1941. These survivors are entitled to an additional annual payment of NIS 3,600 (approx. $950) and will be exempt from paying for medication.
