Prime Minister Naftali Bennett issues a statement condemning online death threats made against Sharon Alroy-Preis, the head of public health services in the Health Ministry.
“The fake [news] war by anti-vaxxers against Dr. Alroy-Preis must stop,” says Bennett.
“Vaccines are Israel’s ‘Iron Dome’ against the coronavirus,” he adds, likening the shots to an Israeli air defense system that intercepts missiles.
The vaccines, Bennett adds, “are life-saving and enable us to keep Israel open and functioning. Ignore the fake [news], go get vaccinated.”
