2 Просмотры
Israel will transfer 5,000 vaccines doses to Palestinian medical workers, according to a spokeswoman for Defense Minister Benny Gantz.

Palestinians have struggled to secure vaccines even as Israel races out to a global lead. Agencies including the United Nations have urged Israel to help make the shots available to Palestinians because it occupies the West Bank and controls access to Gaza.

This week the Palestinians will receive their first shipments of doses made by AstraZeneca Plc, Pfizer Inc. and Russia’s Sputnik V, said Osama al-Najjar, director general of medical services for the Palestinian Authority’s Health Ministry. He said the shots would come directly from manufacturers and that he was unaware of any planned shipment from Israel.
