Mohammad Dahlan: UAE to send another 40,000 Sputnik V vaccines to Gaza

Exiled Gaza security chief Mohammad Dahlan announces that the United Arab Emirates will send another 40,000 Russian Sputnik V vaccines to the Gaza Strip, to arrive tomorrow.

“In the next step of the Emirates’ generous donations, I’m glad to inform our patient and steadfast people about the arrival of a new shipment of coronavirus vaccines, with the aim of providing protection for our valiant medical staff and priority groups,” Dahlan says in a tweet.

Dahlan, a key rival of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, has lived in the Emirates since 2011. He is said to have become a close confidant of Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Zayed, the Emirates’ de facto ruler.

With Emirati backing, Dahlan previously organized 20,000 Sputnik V doses for the Gaza Strip in mid-February.
