As we reported earlier, today, on September 25, Israel imposed quarantine restrictions all across the country.
“As a result of 17-hour debates, the government made a decision to close the economy of the country completely, starting from 2:00 p.m., Friday, for two weeks. The synagogues remain open for Yom Kippur. In other words, the country, in fact, will be completely paralyzed and closed, excluding places, where people got infected the most,” the message said.
