Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defends the ultra-Orthodox community in the face of widespread criticism of its response to the pandemic, in an interview with a Haredi radio station.
“The media distorts the reality in the media,” he tells Kol Berama. “Was the coronavirus because of the Haredi public? Because of the Haredim there was coronavirus in France and Germany, in England?”
“The media always incites against me and the Haredi community, just as it incites against right-wing voters,” he says. “Our answer will be at the ballot box.”
