The NGOs Adam, Teva v’Din and the Movement for the Quality of Government appealed to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (HaLikud-Beitenu), requesting that he prevent the appointment of Hezi Tzaig, a former Likud activist, to the position of chairman of the plenum of the Nature and Parks Authority. According to the organizations, the appointment was made with improper procedure by outgoing Minister for Environmental Protection, Gilad Erdan (HaLikud-Beitenu), in the last days of the sitting government, and there is a fear it might be politically motivated.

IDF armor tanks last week caused severe damage to one of the most important nature reserves in the Negev, the Great Streams reservation. The tank crews drove through the area, against agreements of the Military with the Nature and Parks Authority, ignoring signs prohibiting the driving.
