תיעוד: מסיבה רבת משתתפים בירושלים דוברות המשטרה

Israel Police officers over the weekend discovered a house party on Herzliya's Ha'ogen Street.

The party violated Israel's lockdown, which bans citizens from entering each other's homes and from holding gatherings.

The body camera worn by one of the officers showed how those present at the party attempted to avoid the officers, hiding in various areas of the home, including in clothes closets.

Dozens of people were present at the Herzliya party, some of them without masks. Many bottles of alcohol were also discovered at the scene.

Police fined the house owners 5,000 shekel, as well as an additional 1,000 for refusal to disperse the gathering. Those attending the party were fined 500 shekel each.

In Jerusalem, another large party was discovered, with participants attempting to avoid police when the party was exposed. According to police, the party organizer, a 29-year-old woman, is suspected of having coronavirus and should have been in quarantine at the time of the party.

Some of those at the party were under the influence of large quantities of alcohol and began fighting with the officers. One of them, a young man of approximately 22 years old, was detained for questioning. During a search of the building, officers located additional youths who had attempted to hide behind curtains, in the basement, and in inner rooms. Dozens of fines were handed out.

Earlier this week, during a discussion on raising fines for coronavirus violations, Blue and White criticized the Likud's stance, implying that those in Bnei Brak violate the law, while those in Herzliya keep it. In a statement, the party said: "We will not allow for there to be a fake lockdown. The same law applies in Bnei Brak and Herzliya."
