Israel gives vulnerable Palestinian terrorist ‎prisoners covid vaccines. PA “demands” ‎that “A neutral medical committee ‎supervise the prisoners’ vaccination” ‎

Headline: “The [PA-funded] Prisoners’ ‎Club: Three sick prisoners in Ashkelon ‎Prison received the vaccine”‎

‎“The [PA-funded] Prisoners’ Club said that ‎three sick prisoners in Ashkelon Prison ‎received the Coronavirus vaccine ‎yesterday [Jan. 17, 2021]: Muwaffaq Uruq ‎‎(i.e., terrorist, involved in murder of 23), ‎Yasser Rabai’ah (i.e., terrorist, murdered 1 ‎together with an accomplice), and Wael ‎Abu Shkheidim (PWW was unable to ‎determine the nature of his crimes -Ed.).‎

The Prisoners’ Club explained that the ‎three prisoners are serious medical cases ‎‎– prisoners Muwaffaq Uruq and Yasser ‎Rabai’ah have cancer, and prisoner Wael ‎Abu Shkheidim suffers from a severe ‎health condition…‎

The Prisoners’ Club emphasized the ‎main demand: A neutral medical ‎committee that will supervise the ‎prisoners’ vaccination, the type of ‎vaccination, and the manner in which it ‎is given, especially in the shadow… of a ‎series of concerns connected to a long ‎history [of] a policy that the occupation ‎has implemented on the bodies of the ‎prisoners throughout the recent ‎decades, including using their bodies ‎for experiments (sic., see note below ‎regarding the PA libel on medical abuse of ‎Palestinian prisoners).”‎

Muwaffaq Naif Hassan Uruq – Arab-Israeli terrorist who led two suicide bombers to their double attack in Tel Aviv in which 23 people were murdered and dozens injured on Jan. 5, 2003. Uruq is serving a 30-year sentence.

Yasser Rabai'ah and Ismail Radaida – Palestinian terrorists who murdered Greek ‎Orthodox monk Tsibouktsakis Germanus in an attack on the Jerusalem-Ma'ale Adumim ‎road on June 12, 2001.‎

Libel on medical abuse of Palestinian prisoners - the PA claims that Israel abuses Palestinian prisoners, through medical neglect, medical experiments, and by intentionally infecting them with diseases. However, the International Red Cross regularly visits these prisoners and has not documented or accused Israel of any of these claims. Likewise, lists of demands occasionally issued by the prisoners during hunger strikes - such as during one in 2011 - include no demands relating to these claims. PMW has documented prisoners talking about how they "lack nothing" in the prisons, and that "the worst thing about Israeli prison" is riding in a prison vehicle that has no padding on the seat. When PMW contacted the Israeli Ministry of Health in 2007 regarding PA claims of medical experiments on prisoners, the ministry responded: "Clinical testing on prisoners in prison was never approved, never performed, and is most certainly not taking place at present."
