Israel’s Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein has overruled a decision by the nation’s tax authority that denied payment of damages to a Catholic church on the Sea of Galilee for an arson attack last June.
Weinstein decided Monday that Israel will compensate the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes in the town of Tabgha, after arsonists set fire to the church, destroying much of the roof and gutting large portions of the interior.
