Prime Minister Netanyahu says that the situation will be reassessed in two weeks time and if it continues to improve there will be a further easing of restrictions. But if there is another outbreak or a worsening of the statistics, tougher restrictions will be reimposed.
Netanyahu says that Independence Day and Memorial Day for the Fallen Soldiers of Israel and Victims of Terrorism events will take place without crowds.
He also asks Israel’s Muslim citizens, as was the case with Jewish citizens over Passover, not to hold events beyond the nuclear family, and to celebrate the holiday without gatherings.
