Police order closure of Tel Aviv’s Carmel Market, despite PM saying it’d remain open

Police order food stands in Tel Aviv’s Carmel Market to close in accordance with new emergency regulations against the coronavirus.

The regulations, which took effect this morning, bar open air markets from operating.

The order came despite Prime Minister’s Office saying last night that the Carmel Market and Jerusalem’s Mahane Yehuda would remain open for now.
