As part of the enforcement of lockdown regulations, Israel Police will be setting up hundreds of roadblocks nationwide to deter Israelis from traveling to family or friends for Rosh Hashanah.

Anyone caught trying to sneak home late at night or early in the morning beyond 500 meters of their homes will be fined NIS 500 per passenger in the vehicle and if they are on their way to their destination, they will be sent home. Repeat violators [those caught trying to make their way through another route] will receive additional fines.

An exception will be made for anyone traveling to the airport bearing valid tickets for a previously scheduled flight within four hours of the flight or those returning home from the airport.

According to the police, Israelis don’t fear the coronavirus but do fear fines.

  1. NO PROBLEM. DEMONSTRATIONS HAVE BEEN ORGANISED MOTSAI CHAG IN YERUSHALYIM,BNEI BRAK AND OTHER TOWNS. THE POLICE CAN’T STOP PEOPLE TRAVELLING TO AND FROM DEMONSTRATIONS – JUST LIKE THE LEFTISTS.
    ALSO, THEY HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO MAKE UP FINES THAT HAVEN’T BEEN AUTHORISED BY LAW

  2. Israelis don’t fear the coronavirus but do fear fines Which is exactly what led to 2nd wave of Corona, when schools fined teachers $1000 for each day they missed schools, when they were still sick with Corona. Shame on Department of Education. Shame on Israeli Government, respecting people flying & desecrating Yom-Tov but not letting people have a proper Yom-Tov in Israel.

  3. “According to the police, Israelis don’t fear the coronavirus but do fear fines.”

    True. 160,000+ cases, 60 deaths under age 60. Not so much to fear. 500 shekel is 500 shekel.

  4. Let me see them Do the same thing by yom hazikaron or you haatzmaut
    Discrimination to the fullest extent!!
    Jews were always the worst jew haters

  5. There is no COVID19 epidemic in Israel. Only 182 people under the age of 70 have died from or with COVID19. As many as 25% of these were not COVID deaths at all but got tagged that way. The average age of death is 80. Every year 900 die from the flu and 8000 from cigarette smoking, far more than the 1,100 that may have died from or with COVID19. Israel does not have a high infection rate. Israel does the most testing and at the highest magnification. The tests don’t reveal infections but exposure. And even if they did reveal infections, infections of people who don’t develop symptoms are not a problem. Rather, they lead to herd immunity. The Israeli leaders and press are either the biggest liars in history or the most ill-informed.
    “But there’s a more fundamental point that I want to make sure have time to address and that is this idea that somehow has evolved that we must stop cases. That was never the policy, that should never be the policy when you have an infection that 99% of people have no problem with. It’s no big deal if low risk people get the infection. It’s really irrational to somehow keep apart healthy younger people, to insist that they should wear a mask, or that there should be some limit in restaurants….It doesn’t matter that young healthier people get the infection. In fact there’s a positive. Because we know the way to get immunity in the population is to have more people who are lower risk get the infection and become immune.” Dr. Scott Atlas, MD, of Stanford University, President Trump’s new corona virus adviser
