Ministers convene to discuss reopening schools, airport

The cabinet is meeting to discuss the reopening of grades 7-10 in low-infection areas.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly backs the resumption of studies next week, while Education Minister Yoav Gallant wants classes to resume earlier.

Transportation Minister Miri Regev is also set to present a plan to the cabinet whereby all Israelis abroad would be permitted to return to Israel to vote in next month’s elections. The plan would reportedly see the controversial Permits Committee scrapped.
