Gaza receives corona vaccines from UAE

RAFAH: Gaza on Sunday has received around twenty thousand corona virus vaccine doses from the United Arab Emirates.

The Russian-made Sputnik V doses entered Gaza via the Rafah crossing with Egypt, AFP journalists said — meaning they did not pass through Israel, which has maintained a tight blockade on Gaza since 2007.

Last week, Mohammed Dahlan, a former top member of Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas´s Fatah party now exiled in the United Arab Emirates, announced the delivery of the vaccines as a “generous grant” from Abu Dhabi.
