South Hebron Hills - corona vaccinations for Palestinians entering Israel
At the Meitar checkpoint, Muhammad Abu Arkov, who works as a construction worker in Sderot, tells us that eesterday he was vaccinated for the first time. The vaccinations were carried out inside a Magen David Adom tent set up at the checkpoint. Although there was a long queue of those waiting, they did not wait long and the queue was dealt with quickly and efficiently. Muhammad was invited to come in 21 days again to receive the additional vaccine. Very happy and satisfied.
The merchants have not yet been vaccinated and therefore do not have a permit to trade in Israel.
