Two children were discovered by police in the trunk of a moving car last night, and their mother’s excuse was: they were required to quarantine.

The family, says Israel Police, had returned recently from Turkey and were stopped in the Pisgat Ze’ev neighborhood of Jerusalem, where a 5-year-old and a 10-year-old were discovered in the trunk.

In the video, circulated by police, Border Police officers are seen demanding the woman open the trunk, and when she does, the two children climb out. The family was handed a NIS 15,000 fine for violating quarantine, since all three of them were required to stay in quarantine for a week following their return from Turkey.
