The State Comptroller’s Office releases its annual report, which this year includes sections scrutinizing the egg industry, decries a lack of sufficient cyber defenses in the health sector, and faults prosecutors for not following guidelines on closing criminal cases, among other subjects.

Another section says there was a budgetary shortcoming of hundreds of millions of shekels for protecting communities along the borders with Lebanon and Gaza and in the West Bank from potential terror attacks.
