Israel: The Palestinian Authority said it expects to receive its first COVID-19 vaccine dose in March with drugmaker AstraZeneca and accused Israel of ensuring that vaccines are available in the occupied area for duty. The report further reveals that the state of Israel achieves this objective by: (1) affording Jewish people throughout the world the right to secure Israeli citizenship while denying this right to Palestinians; (2) establishing mass Jewish-only settlements on Palestinian land driving Palestinian residents out; (3) restricting Palestinians' freedom of movement and political participation; and (4) holding Palestinians hostage under an illegal military occupation.

The Trump administration has effectively endorsed Israel's right to build West Bank settlements by abandoning a long-held USA position that they break global law.

The Israeli government has not yet issued a response.

Israel is leading the world in vaccinating its people, with nearly 20% of the population having received at least one dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.

While Israel has already become a world leader in per capita vaccination, Palestinians in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip are yet to secure their first supplies.

Husam Zomlot, a senior Palestinian diplomat in London, described the situation as "vaccine apartheid" in a post on Twitter, a charge that Israel denies.

Israel's immunization program includes Arab citizens of the country and Palestinian citizen of East Jerusalem. But human rights groups, such as Amnesty International, are putting pressure on the Israeli government to provide further assistance.

"We are cooperating with the Palestinians to make sure that they get proper treatment to coronavirus patients".
