Because of Lebanon and Gaza… a report reveals Israel’s losses and the numbers are in the billions!

War damage to commercial projects and property is estimated at $6 billion to date

The chief economist at the Ministry of Finance, Samuel Abramson, published an analysis in which he explained the differences and costs to the economic facility as a result of extending the service of the reserves versus extending the regular service.

He pointed out that the cost of extending the service of the reserves is much higher than extending the service of regular soldiers, and could reach more than one billion shekels per month, and this is an approximate cost, because “the exact cost cannot be published because it is necessary to preserve the secrets of the military power systems of the Israeli army.” .

This analysis, published by Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper, comes to clarify the repercussions of extending military service on the economic facility, in light of the Ministry of Finance’s struggle with the expanded security budget that the Ministry of Security obtained in the wake of the war.

According to Abramson’s analysis, extending reserve service for men for a month for the age group of 40-45 years is estimated at approximately $17,000 for each male soldier, and more than $10,000 for each female; For the age group 31 to 39 years, it amounts to $15,000 for each male, and about $9,000 for females. As for the age group between 22 and 30 years old, it amounts to $9,000 a month for males, and about $7,500 for females.

In a comparison between male and regular reserve soldiers, the average cost reaches $13,000 per month for reservists, and $7,500 for each regular soldier. As for women, the cost of a reserve soldier per month is $9,000, and to extend service for regular female soldiers, the cost is about $6,000 per month.

Yedioth Ahronoth pointed out that the cost is calculated only for non-Haredi men and women, who have different calculations.

In a related context, “Yedioth Ahronoth” quoted the Director of the Tax Authority in Israel, Shai Ahranovich, that the war’s damages to commercial projects and property are estimated at $6 billion to date, including about $300 million at the northern border, which there are difficulties in estimating. Damage in them accurately now.

The newspaper cited, as an example of the situation on the northern border, the difficult situation experienced by the Metulla settlement, which was established in 1896, as it was transformed more than five months ago into a closed military zone, after 2,500 people were displaced from it, and currently “no human being is seen on its horizon,” and no Apple and citrus trees are picked there. The newspaper pointed out that despite the ongoing damage to the view, no real estate appraiser or insurance agent arrives to inspect the damage.

The newspaper conducted an interview with the head of the local council in Metulla, David Azoulay, who complained that for half a year, about 100,000 people have been living outside their homes, and that the strip of fence about five kilometers deep to the south is devoid of residents, and there are only soldiers.

A second settlement that is experiencing a difficult reality on the northern border of occupied Palestine is Al-Manara, which was evacuated by all its residents, according to the Israeli “Walla” news website, which prepared a report about it, in which it was stated that Al-Manara is the northern settlement that was damaged in the harshest way, and it turned into a symbol of the battle against Hezbollah. God, as more than 104 housing units out of 155 were hit, some of which were completely destroyed.

The website added that in Al-Manara, public buildings and infrastructure were also damaged, and the agricultural sector was also severely damaged. Workers cannot approach the orchards, whose owners lost not only the fruits of the current season, which were not harvested, but also the coming seasons because it is not possible to care for the trees and prepare them for the next season now, and “an orchard that does not receive attention will not reap fruits in the next season, and it is difficult “Restoring it and returning it to its previous state,” according to experts.

In its report, the “Walla” website touched on the intention of a number of Al-Manara residents not to return to it after the end of the war. In this context, one of the settlements in Al-Manara was quoted as being upset because her son, his wife, and his son decided not to return to Al-Manara, breaking the chain of four generations who lived in Al-Manara. Metulla.

Like northern occupied Palestine, the settlements in southern occupied Palestine are experiencing a bad economic situation due to the war. For example, the Israeli economic website “Calcalist” reported that the management of the port of “Eilat” announced its intention to dismiss about 60 workers out of 120 workers, due to the attacks carried out by the Yemenis. On ships heading to the port, which led to a decline in the volume of activity and port revenues, which fell by more than 80%. (Al-Mayadeen Net)
