Netanyahu: Those who hold pirate weddings could find themselves holding funerals

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gives a warning to those who instead of holding weddings in event halls (which have been shuttered) host large crowds in private homes: “they might find themselves subsequently holding funerals.”

However, he defends Health Minister Yuli Edelstein, who attended a birthday party for his wife in a private home with nearly 50 other people hours after he announced that such gatherings would be illegal. Netanyahu says that the new restrictions had not gone into effect yet, and that therefore Edelstein did not do anything wrong.
