Naftali Bennett: IDF prepared for shutdown, but we'll ease into it

Defense Minister Naftali Bennett said on Tuesday that the IDF was ready in case of a complete national lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak.
"The IDF is ready to place a full shut down, there are seven battalions at the ready. I don't enjoy pictures of soldiers enforcing a shut down, but if there's no choice we will do it. If it happens we'll ease the public into it, we are the people's army."
