Palestinian activist convicted by Israeli military court

Palestinians scuffle with Israeli soldiers outside of al Tuwani in the West Bank

Meanwhile Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited a Covid-19 vaccination facility in Umm Al-Fahm on Friday, meeting the millionth Israeli to get the jab.

Israel is now leading the world in the number of vaccines per capita given to its residents.

"I think I have more than 55 charges against me on my file", he said, adding that numerous charges against him are over staging or participating in demonstrations, which the army consider violations of military orders in the area.

Amro is the co-founder of Youth Against Settlements (YAS), a group of nonviolent Palestinian activists in the flashpoint city of Hebron in the southern West Bank. They're in charge of own health care under Oslo Accords.

Gewolb said the allegation that Israel "excluded" Palestinians was untrue. "It is very dispersed - there are many primary care clinics in every neighborhood or small towns - but we also have the centralized health care system". Priority is being given to the over-60s, health workers and people who are clinically vulnerable.

If the coronavirus is not deemed a biological weapon, is the heavily-publicized Covid-19 vaccine in danger of being weaponized when over 159,000 Palestinians who have tested positive in Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) are being denied treatment during a deadly pandemic? An opened BioNTech-Pfizer vial has to be used within a short time.

Coinciding with its rapid vaccine rollout, Israel is facing tight new restrictions aimed at stemming what has become a massive new outbreak of coronavirus cases. Health officials have suggested that the third nationwide shutdown, which was imposed in December, would be tightened this week. "Health Minister Yuli Edelstein last month told The New York Times it is in Israel's interest to help stop the virus from spreading among Palestinians, adding that he has 'no doubt it will be done'". "Therefore, there's no choice but a full and fast closure".

An Israeli military court on Wednesday convicted a Palestinian rights activist of offences in the occupied West Bank, in a case that Amnesty International described as politically motivated.

Wisconsin officer won't be charged in shooting of Jacob Blake
He said Sheskey stopped shooting when he saw Blake was no longer a threat and immediately began to give Blake first aid. Blake, 29, was shot by officer Rusten Sheskey on August 23 after an altercation between Blake and multiple officers.

The group has also condemned as "disgraceful" charges brought against Amro by the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank. More than 1,600 people have died from COVID-19.

"It doesn't help Israel, because if everyone in Israel is vaccinated and Palestinians in the West Bank are not, the pandemic will not be controlled", he said. Some fear that immunizations will be delayed as rich countries inoculate populations first.

The Post goes on to say: Israel is actually already vaccinating Palestinians - the ones in east Jerusalem.

CAMPAIGNERS have demanded the United Nations intervene after Palestinian activist Issa Amro was charged by an Israeli military court in Ofer for protesting against the illegal occupation without a permit.

In less than three weeks, Israel has vaccinated nearly 15% of its 9.3 million people with the first of two doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, dramatically outpacing the rollout in the United States and much of Europe, in terms of population size. Hundreds of thousands of Israelis also live in settlements throughout the territory. The Russian-made Sputnik V and UK-produced AstraZeneca vaccines have been reported as possibilities. There is no agreed timeline as of now, he added, but "we expect delivery by the end of February or in March".

Dr Baroud said even before the vaccines arrived in Israel, Tel Aviv has greatly mishandled the crisis from the onset.

"And there are many other Palestinians like me who are sitting in jail simply for resisting this occupation".
