Labor MK denounce’s Ashkelon ban on Arab workers

MK Nachman Shai (Labor) says Ashkelon Mayor Itamar Shimoni’s order to discontinue construction at building sites where Arab Israelis are employed is illegal, and should be canceled at once.

“Relations between Jews and Arabs are now being tested, and leaders are commanded to preserve such relations, not tear them apart to the point where it may be impossible to fix them,” he says, according to Walla.

“[Shimoni’s] decision is patently unlawful,” he adds.
