Defense Minister Benny Gantz says his government will continue to work to get vaccines to the Palestinians, after a deal to transfer doses to the PA was rejected by Ramallah.
“We are committed to the health of our neighbors, and I’m sure a solution will be found to the satisfaction of both sides,” he says.
He says Israel will work hard to find more avenues for cooperation with the PA, with Egypt’s help.
He also issues a fresh threat against Hamas in Gaza.
“What was, will not be. Without [the return of] our boys and regional stability, Gaza will not be rehabilitated economically,” he says, referring to remains of soldiers and live civilians held captive by the terror group.
At another faction meeting, Health Minister Nitzan Horovitz tells his Meretz faction that despite the fact their coalition is not a “normal” one, it is functioning well so far.
