Opposition leader Isaac Herzog (Labor) said it was "unfortunate that while thousands of people still don't have electricity, the prime minister is focused on public relations and making jokes in front of the cameras. I wonder if this briefing had any kind of operational value."


Herzog pointed out that on Wednesday he called for the government to be prepared for the storm, and asked why the National Emergency Authority was not immediately activated.


"Why are the special procedures voted in by the government and cabinet for national emergencies left only on paper? Why does the average citizen not know where to turn, and why didn't the local and national governments coordinate? Why are we always unprepared for the moment of truth?" Herzog asked.
