Israel has rejected a United Nations call to secure the supply of vaccines to the Palestinians in the occupied territories.

Israeli Health Minister Yuli Adelstein reiterated that Israel is not legally obligated to secure the provision of vaccines to the Palestinians.

In an interview with the BBC, he said that according to the Oslo Accords, the Palestinians should take charge of managing their health affairs.

UN human rights experts say that in such an exceptional circumstance, international law has priority over the Oslo Accords.
