Previously KAN announced the withdrawal of the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 due a strike in the Ministry of Foreign affaires. The Ministry manages the General Security Service (GSS or Shin Bet) that protects the delegation when it travels to the contest and the protection couldn’t be guaranteed. Now the protection will be assumed by a security company of Italy in collaboration with the Shin Bet.
