BBC: Coronavirus: Israeli minister resigns over plans for second lockdown. “An Israeli cabinet minister has resigned in protest against plans to impose a second national lockdown. Housing Minister Yaakov Litzman said the restrictions would prevent Jewish people from celebrating religious festivals later this month. The lockdown is due to come into force on Friday, the Jewish new year, and affect Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, on 27 September.”
