Israel has provided coronavirus vaccines to the Palestinian Authority, the government said on Tuesday, rolling back its previous claim that the Palestinians have not received any vaccines.The government told the High Court of Justice that a shipment of 100 vaccine doses was provided in response to the Palestinians' request and that another shipment is expected to arrive in about a week and a half. The delivery was approved by Health Minister Yuli Edelstein, according to the government.
According to Ma'an, the vaccines went to medical workers in Palestinian hospitals.
Which means that Israel is acting exactly as international law demands under the laws of belligerent occupation, which Israel's High Court uses as a basis for its rulings.
Israel doesn't have to provide vaccines unless the local authorities ask. When they asked, Israel responded and gave it to them.
Practically every article about Israel not providing vaccines, and everything that NGOs accused Israel of, are lies.
The Palestinians don't want to publicly ask for vaccines, and they are set to get large quantities over the next two months. Israel transferring the vaccines publicly is also politically sensitive - the family of Hadar Goldin is suing for Israel not to provide any aid to Gaza until his body is returned by Hamas.
And the Palestinian political leaders are taking propaganda advantage of the worldwide condemnation of Israel scrupulously adhering to international law. This article in Palestine News Network shows that their primary concern isn't actually procuring vaccines, but castigating Israel and recruiting celebrity Westerners to help:
Does this sound like their priority is Palestinian lives, or attacking Israel?
All lies. And none of the "progressive" groups that claim to "care deeply about Israel" will apologize for spreading these lies.
