JERUSALEM, Jan 9 (Reuters) - All four rate setters at Israel's central bank voted to keep the benchmark interest rate at 0.1 percent for a 22nd straight month on Dec. 26, minutes of the discussions showed on Monday.
Policymakers cited continued deflation, where the annual inflation rate held at -0.3 percent in November, and strong economic growth led by consumer spending and a labour market that is "near to full employment."
Israel's economy grew a provisional 3.8 percent in 2016.
