Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered to suspend all work on the development of the railway infrastructure for the next 72 hours, said the office of the Prime Minister.
The office stated that during this period, it is planned to decide the fate of the work on the railway on Saturday. According to the Prime Minister’s office, the Ministry of transport has presented conflicting information about the need for such works on the Sabbath, which «provoked a crisis of confidence in relations with Minister Yisrael Katz», which Netanyahu was accused of trying to destabilize the government by provoking a senseless crisis with ultra-Orthodox parties.
At the moment it is unclear whether there will be changes in the timetables in the first half of the day on Friday and Saturday night.
We will remind, the ultra party demanded to stop work on Saturdays at all 20 sites of the railway, although it made recommendations to the police, according to which the carrying out of works at three of the 20 sites on weekdays endangers the lives of citizens.
