The Knesset Labor, Welfare and Health Committee unanimously approved for second and third readings, Monday, a bill by Member of Knesset Adi Koll (Yesh Atid) and others to ban smoking at sports venues except for selected areas.

Under the measure, someone who smokes where prohibited will be fined 14,400 shekels ($4,180) and stadium operators face a fine of NIS 75,300 ($21,860). Localities will be charged with enforcing the law, if approved.
