According to Khaberni, Noy Ozerd, a communications engineer who also works in the field of music, was called up for service following October 7th, posted a picture of his bank account on Facebook to complain about his meager earnings, which amounted to 5,379 shekels (equivalent to $1,400 US dollars).

Mockingly, he added, "10 shekels per hour, 215 shekels per day, why don't we get our tax money!" His post received significant attention.

The Israeli government allocated at least 1 billion shekels (260 million dollars) for payments and financial grants to reserve soldiers. A financial grant of 280 dollars was allocated to unmarried Israeli soldiers only once, while those with families received 500 dollars.

The Israeli Ministry of Finance recorded a deficit of 6 billion dollars last month due to the increase in war expenses, which reached 246 million dollars per day without accounting for indirect losses.
