Report: Netanyahu ‘will not allow El Al to collapse’ due to pandemic

Associates of the prime minister tell the Ynet news site he “will not allow El Al to collapse” due to the massive losses it has suffered during the coronavirus pandemic.

“We will help [the company] to ensure its stability,” they say.

El Al has been operating a very small number of commercial flights during the crisis while continuing to operate cargo flights.
