Lockdown rules approved 8-7 by Knesset panel

The Knesset’s Constitution, Law and Justice Committee approves the government’s lockdown rules.

Knesset members on the panel vote 8-7 in favor of the regulations, after the right-wing Yamina opposition party opposes it.

Yamina says it was opposed to the rules because of the ban on takeout from restaurants.

The lockdown went into effect yesterday, shutting down commercial activity but keeping schools open.
