Fines for those traveling to so-called "banned" countries will reportedly be several thousand shekels
Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz said on Monday that authorities were working with the transport ministry to expand testing for the coronavirus at Ben-Gurion airport after an influx of passengers on Friday overwhelmed staff and thousands of people were allowed into the country without being tested.
He said the ministry is demanding more staff be hired to conduct testing and for the airport to reserve more room for the screenings.
"The queues are already shorter, but that is not enough. We need to shorten them better, and especially prepare for the rush expected at the airport during the summer months," he said.
He added that "very high" financial penalties will be imposed on anyone ...

Following the tragedy at Meron, EMT received new defibrillator and medical kit and used them to save a life in Beitar Illit on Sunday
Beitar Illit - On Sunday night in Beitar Illit, United Hatzalah volunteer EMT Shlomo Caap was in the local synagogue attending a lecture when his communications device alerted him to a nearby medical emergency. A block away, right across from Shlomo’s apartment building, a 60-year-old man with no severe medical background suddenly collapsed in his apartment. A family member quickly called United Hatzalah’s Dispatch and Command Center as the man’s son-.in-law began attempting chest compressions with the guidance of the dispatcher on the line.
Shlomo quickly left his lecture and ran up a block with his vest and medical bag in hand, as...
A federal judge said Friday that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention can’t enforce its rules for coronavirus-era sailing against cruise ships in Florida starting July 18.
The decision was hailed by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) — who filed suit against the public health agency in April — as a “major victory.”
“The CDC has been wrong all along, and they knew it,” DeSantis said in a statement, alleging that the agency was trying to “sink” the industry. “Today, we are securing this victory for Florida families, for the cruise industry, and for every state that wants to preserve its rights in the face of unprecedented federal overreach.”
Under the 124-page ruling from U....
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis edged former President Trump in a weekend presidential straw poll conducted at the annual Western Conservative Summit in Denver.
Mr. DeSantis received 74.12% support in response to a poll asking conference attendees to “vote for all candidates you approve of for President in 2024,” followed by Mr. Trump, who garnered 71.43% support, according to results issued Saturday.
The survey of 371 respondents released at the end of the two-day summit offered an unscientific but intriguing glimpse at how conservative voters are leaning well ahead of the 2024 presidential race.
Coming in third behind the two Florida Republicans was Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, who received 42.86% support, followed by former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with 39.3...
Israel’s Prime Minister Naftali Bennett on Sunday issued a warning to the Hamas terrorist group in his address at a state ceremony in Jerusalem commemorating Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers who perished during the 2014 Gaza War.
“Our enemies should know the rules, and they should know that our patience is running thin,” Bennett said. “Those living in communities adjacent to the Gaza Strip are not second-class citizens. The residents of Sderot, Ashkelon and Kfar Aza are entitled to live in peace and security,” Bennett said, referring to both the rocket attacks and the continued incendiary balloons launched on southern Israel from the Hamas-controlled coastal enclave.
“Our rivalry is not with the Gaza population. We have no intention to harm th...
