Israel Suspends Delivery of Vaccines to Other Countries Amid Legal Uncertainty
Israel has halted its plan to ship surplus coronavirus vaccines to a group of friendly nations as authorities examine whether it was in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s authority to order the move, the Justice Ministry said Thursday.
The announcement put a freeze on a plan that reportedly would have seen up to 100,000 vaccine doses sent to numerous countries.
In a statement, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit said he had received a number of requests to review Netanyahu’s decision. One of those requests, he said, came from Netanyahu’s National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat, who told Mandelblit he had been instructed, apparently by the prime minister, to “freeze any action on the matter.” (TOI / VFI News)
