Israel’s prime minister has tested positive for the coronavirus and is working from home, while quoting his office Associated Press reported on Monday.
Naftali Bennett’s office said the premier was feeling well and would continue his schedule as planned, which includes a briefing on an attack late Sunday that killed two Border officers.
Israel is experiencing a modest increase in COVID-19 infections as an omicron subvariant spreads there as in many other countries. Bennett and nearly half of Israel have received three vaccinations.
In recent days, Bennett met with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
And hours before the test, Bennett rushed to the city of Hadera, where gunmen killed two Border Police officers and wounded four others before they were shot and killed.
