Ministers who attended a Coronavirus cabinet meeting where an exit plan for a nationwide lockdown was approved criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for calling the move a "success."
"When Prime Minister Netanyahu called the lockdown a "huge success", our stomachs turned," they said. "We did not want to open it up for discussion as long as they approved the first stage. It is clear that this is not a victory snapshot, but a default we had to settle for."
