Today, Monday, the Israeli Cabinet approved the extension of the country’s closure until next Friday at seven o’clock.
On the other hand, a spokesman for Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said Israel had agreed to allocate 5,000 vaccine doses against the Coronavirus to Palestine.
A spokesman for Gantz said, according to Ynet, “5,000 vaccine doses have already been approved.”
He added that “vaccines for 2,500 health workers will arrive in Ramallah early next week.”
A source told the media that “Israel will provide the Pfizer vaccine to Palestine.”
The United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Tor Wainesland, previously called on Israel to help Palestine with the vaccination campaign. According to him, this will be critical to the two governments’ efforts to contain the epidemic.
