The Knesset Finance Committee approved the transfer of NIS 1 billion to the Defense Ministry Tuesday and approved a commitment of NIS 2.3 billion more.
Of the funds to be transferred immediately, NIS 700 million will go to clearing the Sde Dov airport and NIS 300 million will go to compensating reservists.
Part of the money also came from the Finance Ministry's general reserves and some was supposed to go to helping water companies, according to JPost.
In addition, NIS 125 million was taken from the public transportation budget, which sparked an argument that ended when Finance Committee chairman Nissan Slomiansky (Bayit Yehudi) expelled MK Stav Shaffir (Labor) from the meeting.
Shaffir and MK Moshe Gafni (UTJ) demanded to know whether or not the Transportation Ministry agreed to the budget cut, with Shaffir shouting and interrupting a Finance Ministry representative several times.
