The government approved additional restrictions that will keep Israelis at home during the holiday.
Jerusalem will be divided into seven districts and traffic between them will be restricted, unless it’s for an essential need. Some 45 roadblocks have been erected across the country and police are enforcing these regulations, empowered to prevent travel and asking people to supply ID and information about their comings and goings.
Speaking earlier this week, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the upcoming week would determine whether the situation in the country deteriorates or takes a turn for the better, reminding Israelis that they should eat their Seders in their homes with their nuclear families only. He said he did not want to see an uptick in coronavirus cases a few weeks after the Festival of freedom as Israel did after Purim.
