The Ministry of Finance has blocked the Department’s construction program to encourage the construction of armored rooms (MAMAD) in the homes of old buildings.
The program was prepared on the basis of the decision of the government from 2014, made after the counter-terrorist operation «Indestructible rock» in the Gaza strip.
According to The Marker, the Finance Ministry blocked the program because it included the provision of benefits and subsidies for hundreds of millions of shekels per year (total cost of the program reached 10 billion shekels) without identifying the source of funds.
The publication notes that the Ministry of construction jointly with the Department of emergency situations (RAHEL) was to present the programme in April 2015, but in the end has completed work on it only in the summer of 2017.
