KIEV. February 21. UNN. Israel has secretly agreed to buy Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine for Syria in exchange for the transfer of captured Israeli citizens. This was reported by The New York Times with reference to an unnamed official aware of the progress of negotiations, reports UNN.
During the operation, Israel will pay Russia for sending “Satellite V” vaccines to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.
The source of the publication did not say how many doses of the vaccine were mentioned in the agreement.
The Israeli government did not comment on the report, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declined to answer the question, saying only that Israeli vaccines would not be sent to Syria.
At the same time, the SANA news agency controlled by the Assad regime rejected reports that the vaccines were part of an agreement.
The agreement is a rare moment of difficult cooperation between the two states, which have fought several wars and are still challenging the sovereignty of the land, the Golan Heights, which Israel seized in Syria in 1967.
We will remind
About 39% of Israeli adults are fully vaccinated, Israel remains the world leader, and vaccination has begun to defeat the coronavirus – even despite the British strain. Homeless people are vaccinated free of charge in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv.
Israel’s ministerial committee on coronavirus on Thursday, February 18, approved the extension of the obligation to insulate hotels for those returning to the country from all over the world until Monday, March 1. In particular, amid the coronavirus pandemic, Israel has extended for two weeks the suspension of international flights to Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport and back.
