Ministry of Health officials sharply criticized Prime Minister Naftali Bennett this evening, hours after Bennett raised in a hearing about the possibility of imposing restrictions on the unvaccinated citizens.
Bennett also proposed to close Ben Gurion Airport, and thus found himself in opposition to Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz and his ministry.
raised the question of the suspension of the model & ldquo; green class & rdquo ;. However, “canceling the green class means closing schools,” they said. “This is sending thousands of students into isolation.”
This issue is expected to come up tonight in a discussion that the Prime Minister will have with senior health officials and a range of other stakeholders.
< It was also stated that even during the latest wave, when the Delta virus entered Israel, health officials prevented the extreme restrictions that the prime minister wanted to impose. “Bennett’s position surprised us and came out of nowhere. Suddenly he took up arms against the unvaccinated. It is illegal, unnecessary and does not promote immunization. We disagree with the steps taken to force vaccinations and Bennett should be asked why he is suddenly demanding extreme action. ” We do not agree to quarantine the unvaccinated and do not support the abolition of the `` green class ''. We propose to extend the existing restrictions - and no more & rdquo;, - said officials of the Ministry of Health.
