The Defense Ministry’s liaison to the Palestinians reports over 105,000 Palestinian laborers in Israel and West Bank settlements have been vaccinated in recent weeks.

The Coordinator for Government Activities in the Territories says the workers will begin receiving the second dose in two weeks.

“This is meaningful news for the Israeli and the Palestinian public health and economy alike,” Brig. Gen. Fares Atila, the head of COGAT’s Civil Administration, says in a statement.
