The Manufacturers Association said that 1,700 enterprises, employing 39,500 people, were within range of Hamas rockets fired from Gaza. Reports by enterprises from the start of the operation until yesterday's unilateral cease-fire by Israel, indicate that enterprises within 10 kilometers of Gaza, had absentee levels of 40-60%. Absenteeism reached 90% of employees at some companies.
The Manufacturers Association said that its figure does not include indirect financial losses, which it estimates at several tens of millions of shekels.
1,728 claims for compensation for damages related to Operation Cast Lead have already been filed with the Property Tax. Most of the claims were filed by residents of Ashkelon and Ashdod.
