How was the IDF deployed at the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, and is it being utilized today in enforcing the ongoing lockdown?
Horovitz gives his impressions of his interview with New Hope leader Gideon Sa’ar, who is angling to become Israel’s next prime minister, and sees replacing Netanyahu as a “national interest.”
