Netanyahu says women weren’t intentionally excluded from virus panel

According to the Kan public broadcaster, Netanyahu is pushing back against criticism after the coronavirus cabinet is reshuffled, leaving out female ministers.

“It’s not intentional. There are various forums that don’t have women, like some security forums. What’s important is that decisions will be made, and as quickly as possible,” the prime minister is quoted as saying, after opposition leader Lapid brands the government “chauvinist.”
