Defense Minister Naftali Bennett visits the city of Bnei Brak, meeting with the IDF officers responsible for overseeing the military’s assistance effort in the coronavirus hotspot, his office says.

Bennett says the IDF has so far delivered 12,000 hot meals to the Bnei Brak’s elderly population, to those receiving welfare support and to people who are otherwise unable to leave their apartments.

“The IDF and Home Front Command are prepared to operate in any city where they are needed. This warms the heart. Together we will overcome to the coronavirus,” Bennett says.
