Israel to airlift diplomats from abroad to get vaccinated — report

Israel will airlift its diplomats from abroad to get the coronavirus vaccine, the Israel Hayom daily reports.

According to the report, the first flight will depart next week for Ethiopia to bring Israel’s diplomatic staff in Africa to the Jewish state for the shots.

Channel 12, however, says that Israel is vaccinating foreign diplomatic staff in Israel, in the hopes countries will repay the gesture and inoculate Israeli diplomats when the vaccines become available around the world. The move has angered Israeli diplomats, the report says.
