Netanyahu said working on compromise for Memorial Day cemetery visits

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with Defense Ministry officials and a representative of bereaved families of fallen IDF soldiers to hammer out a decision on whether to permit Memorial Day visits at military cemeteries next week, which health authorities have recommended be barred altogether to avoid the spread of the virus.

Channel 12 reports that an emerging compromise would see the graveside visits by immediate family members staggered over this week and early next week to avoid crowding at the sites.

Memorial Day begins next Monday evening and ends Tuesday evening.
