Israel Approves Emergency Financial Aid For Fire Victims

Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon approved on Saturday evening a stipend of 2,500 shekels ($650) per person for those who have fled the raging fires nationwide over the past five days and could not return to their homes either because they were destroyed or are currently uninhabitable.

A money exchanger holds a handful of Israeli shekels in the market place on June 12, 2015, Gaza City, Gaza.
