Weekly cabinet meeting to be held at PM’s office for 1st time during pandemic

For the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began, next week’s cabinet meeting will be held at the Prime Minister’s Residence in Jerusalem and not remotely by video conference, according to the Kan public broadcaster.

During Sunday’s meeting, the government is expected to fill a number of unstaffed ministerial posts, after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged to do so after his decision — later reversed — to appoint a loyalist as justice minister was challenged at the High Court of Justice.
