Israel’s government approved new emergency regulations to limit activity in order to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
The new guidelines are enforceable by police, include a near-total cessation of public transportation and a restriction on venturing further than 100 meters (roughly 300 feet) from one’s house except for the supply of food, medicine, essentials or medical reasons.
Some 650 IDF soldiers will be deployed at checkpoints across the country Sunday morning in order to enforce the new emergency regulations.
The troops will be armed and will assist with their teams in patrolling, isolating and securing certain areas, blocking routes and more.
