Also, there may be changes in the traffic arrangements in the main routes leading to the city for short and fixed periods of time.'

Russian President Vladimir Putin will land in Israel on Wednesday at 1:30 PM. On Thursday, US Vice President Mike Pence will land at Ben Gurion Airport. The Vice President will land at 11:30 PM.
