Viruses and Diseases Have no Boundaries
Following the directive of Defense Minister Naftali Bennett, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) headed by Gen. Kamil Abu Rukun, on Friday 13 March 2020 transferred approximately 200 coronavirus test kits to the Gaza Strip. This is part of a series of efforts that the unit has been promoting over the past month to curb the spread of the coronavirus in the Palestinian Authority and to prevent an outbreak in the Gaza Strip. Gen. Rukun said, "Viruses and diseases have no boundaries - and therefore preventing the spread of the coronavirus in the Gaza Strip and eradicating its outbreak in the territories of Judea and Samaria are of prime Israeli interest. COGAT said it would, along with the Ministry of Health, continue efforts to assist the PA in curbing the spread of the virus in Judea and Samaria, out of Israeli interest and humanitarian thinking.
