Gantz urges Netanyahu to call cabinet meeting to approve use of ‘green badge’

Defense Minister Benny Gantz calls on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to call a coronavirus cabinet meeting today to approve the use of the “green badge” system by next week.

The document, issued to those who have been vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19, will enable holders to access public activities and venues that are currently closed under lockdown orders.

“The economy is collapsing,” Gantz says as some malls and businesses reopen in defiance of the regulations and complain they are being discriminated against.

He claims Netanyahu promised such a move in last week’s coronavirus cabinet meeting, but “thus far, for an unclear reason, Netanyahu has refrained from convening the meeting as agreed.”
