Israel Extends Lockdown, Will Ease Some Curbs From Sunday

Israel’s cabinet voted overnight to extend the country’s lockdown to Sunday morning from Friday, and agreed to begin gradually reopening parts of the economy next week.

Starting Feb. 7, restrictions on movement will be lifted while certain businesses will be able to reopen. Ministers will meet Sunday to further discuss the country’s exit plan from its third lockdown.

The government extended restrictions on entering and exiting the country by two weeks through Feb. 20.
