As per a joint proclamation gave by the Prime Minister’s Office and the Health Ministry, the seven-day lockdown will begin on Tuesday evening.
It accompanies a 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. check in time and conclusion all things considered and kindergartens.
The communities involved are the mostly Arab and ultra-Orthodox ones hit hard by the coronavirus outbreak.
Nine large Jewish and Palestinian neighbourhoods in Jerusalem, the settlements of Beitar Illit and Emanuel, and the Arab cities of Umm al-Fahm and Nazareth in northern Israel are also listed for lockdown.
The cities involved were announced “red” as part of a government’s “traffic light” policy that has classified areas to red, green and orange according to morbidity level.
