20,000 vaccine doses donated by UAE arrive in Gaza

A shipment of 20,000 Russian coronavirus vaccine doses donated by the United Arab Emirates arrives in the Gaza Strip via Egypt.

The delivery was arranged by Mohammad Dahlan, an exiled Fatah official who lives in the Emirates and is a rival of PA President Mahmoud Abbas.

Hamas health spokesperson Ashraf al-Qidra says the doses will be given first to at-risk groups.
