Netanyahu takes half-day off with flu

November 29, 2016 19:14

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took the afternoon off on Tuesday, listening to his doctor who advised rest to recover from the flu.

Netanyahu cancelled a number of events scheduled for the afternoon and evening, including a ceremony at the Hatzor Air force base to thank firefighters from abroad who came to Israel to help put out the fires over the last week; a security cabinet meeting to deal with the Amona issue; and an address to the Global forum of the National Library of Israel meeting in Jerusalem.

The security cabinet meeting on Amona was rescheduled for Wednesday morning, before a bill to legalize some illegal outposts goes to the Knesset for a first reading.
