Urgent Plea from Bennett: We Need to Crush the Pandemic
Yamina Party chairman and former Defense Minister MK Naftali Bennett called on the government to alter its strategy for handling the coronavirus crisis, pushing for a more proactive approach aimed at “eradicating” the pandemic.
In an interview, Bennett blasted Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz, accusing them of failing to work aggressively to end the ongoing crisis.
“The two prime ministers are busy fighting each other,” Bennett said.
The former Defense Minister said that Israel must work quickly to end the pandemic, pointing to the ongoing economic recession – possibly the worst in Israel’s history.
“The prime ministers are busy fighting each other, and they have put politics ahead of the State of Israel. That is very serious, but right now we need to fix it, to crush the coronavirus, and to start fixing our economy. We have no time, this is urgent.” (INN / VFI News)
