Netanyahu seeks dialogue with Haredim to end health violations

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the government will step up enforcement against violators of the health regulations, but adds that he hopes to resolve the disagreements with ultra-Orthodox leaders through “dialogue.”

“We will step up enforcement and tighten the lockdowns and take all the steps needed. I hope we can do this through dialogue,” says Netanyahu at the weekly Likud faction meeting.

“There was also a drop [in cases] among the Haredi public. It’s more difficult there. It’s more crowded there, they don’t have Zoom,” he continued.

“We ask for the cooperation of the Haredi community and its leaders,” Netanyahu says, while urging Israelis to “put politics aside” to defeat the virus.
