Southern Area Factories Lose 200 Million NIS


It is estimated that the loss to factories in southern Israeli rocket strike areas as a result of Operation Pillar of Defense amounts to 200 million NIS. Israel Manufacturers Association officials add that during the warfare, 75% of factory workers reported to their jobs.

In some cases, workers were prohibited from reporting to work due to the rocket fire, primarily those persons living in communities within 7km (4.2 miles) from the Gaza border.
