Dozens try to break out of quarantine hotel, clash with security guards — TV

Dozens of people quarantined in a state-run hotel in Jerusalem have attempted to break out of the facility, according to television reports.

Clashes break out at the entrance of the Leonardo hotel as security guards force them back inside, according to Channels 12 and 13.

The residents are Israelis who recently returned from abroad. Under a recent government order, which has been selectively enforced, all travelers entering Israel must self-isolate in the quarantine hotels. Health officials say they’re reconsidering the policy.
