Untrue libel: Israel is committing a "crime against humanity" by "depriving" Palestinian prisoners of the Coronavirus vaccine

Official PA TV News, on a rally in Nablus supporting prisoners in solitary confinement



Fatah Nablus Branch Secretary Muhammad Hamdan: “[The prisoners] are being subjected to a daily attack by the Israeli administration and the Israeli occupation, in an attempt to criminalize their struggle and in a series of measures whose goal is to harm their salaries and harm their national and political depth, and their image as fighters. Today, the Fatah Movement and all the Palestinian national factions are supporting this sector, and we are always with them.”


Coordinator of Palestinian National and Islamic Forces in Nablus Nasr Abu Jeish: “We demand to protect the prisoners from the measures of oppression that the prison management is carrying out against them. We are with you, and we will continue in activities so they will be released and honored among their relatives. What is being done to them – their isolation, their punishment, and their being deprived of the [Coronavirus] vaccine (sic., Israel has already begun vaccinating the prisoners against the Coronavirus) – this is a crime against humanity.”




Palestinian National and Islamic Forces - an unaffiliated coordinating body comprised of representatives from factions in the PLO and outside the PLO. The Palestinian National and Islamic Forces were established in 2000 shortly after the start of the PA terror campaign (the second Intifada, 2000-2005), under the authorization of Yasser Arafat and the leadership of terrorist Marwan Barghouti. During the PA terror campaign it played an active role in coordinating political efforts and terror attacks against Israel, but since the end of the campaign it has been less significant and its activity is primarily centered in Gaza.
