The government informs the High Court that Prime Minister Naftali Bennett does not plan to move to the official prime ministerial residence in Jerusalem anytime soon, Haaretz reports.

The statement comes in response to a petition filed with the High Court by a series of Bennett’s neighbors in Ra’anana, who object to the beefed up security and constant protests disrupting their daily lives.

But the government tells the court that Bennett and his family cannot move to the Jerusalem residence for at least six months while it undergoes extensive security and infrastructure renovations.
