In news that will surprise nobody, the Palestinian Authority has admitted that instead of using its vaccines for frontline staff, such as doctors and nurses, it instead gave the first vaccines to government officials.

After public pressure and calls for greater transparency, the Palestinian Authority acknowledged that some of its vaccines went to government officials rather than healthcare workers it had previously promised.

The Palestinian Authority Health Ministry had said that the doses were going exclusively to health care workers and the elderly. It lied. In a statement on Tuesday, the PA admitted that some of the doses had gone to others.

The list of those vaccinated includes government ministers, executive members of the Palestine Liberation Organization older than 65, and the Palestinian national soccer team.

Abbas and the PA have a long history of abusing their power – exploiting the alleged struggle of their people to line their own pockets, for example. This incident is no exception.
