Lawmakers from the ultra-Orthodox Shas and United Torah Judaism parties are skipping a meeting in the Knesset House Committee on the legislation that raises fines for lockdown violators, in protest of the bill.

They will also skip the Constitution, Law and Justice Committee meeting later today in which the legislation will be finalized for Knesset plenary votes, reports say.
