Gilat Bennett, the wife of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, is heading overseas for a vacation with her children despite her husband’s warning against travel.

According to the Prime Minister’s Office, the family had intended to visit a different location, but switched plans after that country was marked as a “red country” and barred for travel for Israelis.

However, says the PMO, “after the COVID cabinet decision to leave the skies open for the travel of Israelis,” the family will be heading abroad and “observing all guidelines and rules” related to COVID. The PMO did not say where the family will be traveling.

Most children in Israel are on vacation this week for Hanukkah. The prime minister said several days ago that he does not recommending flying abroad for unnecessary travel, due to fears over the new Omicron COVID variant.
