The Knesset Health and Environment Committee will initiate a process of extending the opening hours of beaches until sundown, committee chair Dov Henin (Hadash) decided Monday. The Knesset Internal Affairs and Environment subcommittee met to discuss the state of the beaches on Monday. Currently, beaches close at 5 p.m.

 “It’s ridiculous that the public is receiving the message that they must come to the beach during the hottest part of the day – the part of the day with the most dangerous radiation,” Henin said. “We will initiate a move to extend the hours until sundown, which gets later and later during the summer.”
