It will operate five stores in an emergency format, supplying free food to hospitals, law enforcement forces and Magen David Adom medical staff, it says.

“We hope to return to normal soon,” it says in a statement.

The fast food chain has also closed many of its restaurants elsewhere, include all its branches in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
