Israel quietly handed over dozens of vaccines to PA — report

Israel secretly handed dozens of coronavirus vaccines to the Palestinian Authority on Monday, the Kan public broadcaster reports.

The vaccines sent to Ramallah are designated for “humanitarian” and “unusual” cases, it says.

It’s unclear who will receive the shots.

Sources close to PA President Mahmoud Abbas, 85, tell the broadcaster he didn’t receive the vaccine, adding that the shots have yet to be administered.

The Palestinians also officially asked for a larger quantity of vaccines from Israel, the report says.
