Turns Out That the People That arrived in Israel with Forged Permits Were Chareidim and Will be Deported


Please tell me that it ain't so ..

please tell me that the forgers are not those who are shoimrei Torah Umitzvois that are into Chesed and distribute chicken soup while having no compunction of spreading death and disease

Please tell me that it was chilonim that drive on shabbos!  

Twenty ultra-Orthodox arrivals from New York were barred from entering the country today after it was discovered they had used forged permits from the committee that currently approves entry to the country.

The families who arrived on a flight to Israel from New York on Wednesday forged their entry permits and will be deported,.

The 13 members of one of the families were all foreign nationals. The second family had an Israeli mother, a foreign father and six children, Channel 12 reported.

One family of 13, who are not Israeli, will be deported tonight, with another family of seven, in which the mother is Israeli, still under review.

Reports say  that Israeli authorities were investigating claims that passengers on an El Al flight from New York, which was later discovered to be carrying 11 travelers infected with the coronavirus, had provided fake test results before boarding the plane.

A woman on the plane claimed that she heard ultra-Orthodox passengers boasting that they had used fake coronavirus tests to get on the flight, Hebrew media reported. Other passengers said that during the flight ultra-Orthodox passengers did not wear masks at times and that the cabin crew did little to encourage them to cover up.

The Health Ministry on Wednesday asked the IDF Home Front Command and the Shin Bet security agency to check if the passengers really did fake the virus tests they had presented before getting on the plane, Channel 12 reported.

El Al, Israel’s national carrier, said in response to the report that all of its flights are handled in accordance with the instructions of various authorities.

“The claims made by passengers were passed on to the acting authorities and we are investigating the claims with the flight crew,” El Al said.

Israel’s land and air gateways have been largely closed since January 25, with Ben Gurion Airport shuttered for all but a few special flights by Israeli airlines to bring back citizens stranded abroad. Health officials are concerned that more contagious strains of the coronavirus could arrive in the country from abroad, as is the case with the so-called British mutation which now accounts for almost all new COVID-19 infections in the country.

Ministers approved early Wednesday the reinstatement of a compulsory quarantine period in special government-run hotels for all those arriving from abroad, a day after the previous regulations on the matter expired.
