Israel will begin on Sunday a vaccination campaign to inoculate some 120,000 Palestinians who are legally employed in Israeli communities, Israel’s military liaison to the Palestinians says.

The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, which administers Palestinian civilian affairs, says it will roll out the immunization campaign at border crossings and industrial zones across the West Bank.

Eight dedicated vaccination complexes will be set up for the campaign, COGAT says, with Israeli healthcare workers administering the shots.

Palestinian workers will be eligible with a prior appointment and the presentation of a valid employment license.

A pilot of the program will take place on Thursday, COGAT says.
