(JNS) Hundreds of thousands of Israelis in northern Israel do not have access to a bomb shelter or secure location, Israel’s Ynet news site reported.

According to the report, the Israel Builders Association released a study based on data from the Central Bureau of Statistics that found that as many as a million Israelis in the northern part of the country lack a bomb shelter or secure location near their homes in case of an attack.

The government approved an NIS 5 billion ($1.4 billion) security plan a year ago, authored by then-defense minister Avigdor Lieberman, but the plan was eventually canceled.
