Did Israel Refuse to Vaccinate Palestinians?
Israel’s focus on vaccination did indeed include Palestinians. Not only that, at multiple occasions Israel offered to assist the Palestinian Authority with hospital equipment, access to vaccines, and more. Israel offered Pfizer vaccines, although the Palestinian Authority chose to purchase the Sputnik vaccine from Russia. But at no point did Israel refuse to vaccinate the Palestinians. Israel is also under no legal obligation to do so, as healthcare concerns are under the authority of the Palestinian government according to the Oslo Accords.
