Cabinet ministers debate airport operations, schools, protests under lockdown

Among the outstanding issues being discussed by ministers on the lockdown plan are the operations of Ben Gurion International Airport.

Hebrew media reports say a special ministerial panel will likely be formed to hammer out how the airport will operate once a lockdown is imposed on the country.

Also on the agenda is whether schools should be allowed to reopen after two weeks, in the second phase of the lockdown plan. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly favors the reopening of kindergartens and elementary schools at this stage.

Meanwhile, the Ynet news site says the government may set out health regulations for demonstrations, which the attorney general has said cannot be banned under the government plan.
