The Israeli Government introduces restrictions regarding Easter-related ceremonies in Jerusalem.
According to the local media, during the Holy Fire ceremony, there will likely be around 15 representatives of the Orthodox Church of different countries in the Church of the Holy Sepulche. They will transport the Holy Fire with a police escort to Ben Gurion Airport where it will be distributed to the delegations, who will not disembark from their planes, in order to avoid Israel’s quarantine requirements.
The flights have already been scheduled to bring the Holy fire to Russia, Ukraine and Greece. The Holy Fire ceremony will take place on the night of April 18, 2020 and will be live-streamed online.
