Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman announces the government has approved a NIS 60 million (some $18.6 million) plan to help rehabilitate parts of the Judean Hills near Jerusalem that were recently ravaged by a massive wildfire.

“We have a great responsibility to the citizens, environment, and landscape of our beautiful country,” Liberman writes on Twitter, without further elaborating.
