Liberman meets with community leaders in south, promises compensation

Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman meets with community leaders in southern Israel who were affected by the latest round of fighting with terror groups in Gaza.

Liberman promises financial compensation to all those who missed work due to the fighting and the lockdown that preceded it.

Liberman says he is expanding the compensation to those in a 40-kilometer radius from the border, up from the previously agreed-on 7 kilometers.

Liberman also notes that money has already been set aside to improve the bomb shelters in the area.
