NGOs ask court to force Israel to provide vaccines for all Palestinians
Israel has donated 5,000 doses to the PA and vaccinated over 100,000 Palestinians who work within sovereign Israel and in its settlements.

Six left-wing NGOs have petitioned the High Court of Justice to force Israel to provide enough vaccines to the Palestinian Authority to inoculate its entire population. “Evidently, the Palestinian Authority has an insufficient number of vaccines, whereas in what is practically the same area, the population of Israeli citizens and residents is almost fully vaccinated, apart from those who decline it,” the NGOs stated in the petition submitted on Thursday by attorney Adi Lustigman.

Those signed onto the petition were Physicians for Human Rights Israel; HaMoked: Center for the Defense of the Individual; Al Mezan Center for Human Rights; Gisha – Legal Center for Freedom of Movement; Adalah: The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel; and Rabbis for Human Rights. At issue has been Israel’s decision early in the process to inoculate its own population first with those vaccines that have arrived, and only then to provide vaccines to the Palestinians, once vaccines on order have been received.
