Israeli Premier Naftali Bennett has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to his spokesperson.
Reported in Israel on Monday, the statement says the prime minister is feeling well and will continue to work from home. This comes at a time when the nation has been shaken by a brutal Islamic terror attack in Hadera on Sunday.
Bennett was last seen attending a meeting in Hadera after the attack and was wearing a mask in the officially released photograph. As it stands, Bennett will hold a situational assessment this morning on last night’s terror attack with the participation of Defense Minister Benny Gantz, Internal Security Minister Omer Barlev, IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi, Shin Bet chief Ronen Bar, police chief Kobi Shabtai and other officials.
The Islamic State terror group claimed responsibility for the deadly terror attack in Hadera and made the claim in a post on the Telegram channel while also releasing a statement through the Amaq propaganda site.“Two members of the Jewish (state’s) police force were killed and others were injured in an immersive commando attack,” IS says in a rare claim for an attack inside Israel.
