Israel will provide the Multinational Force and Observers based in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula with coronavirus vaccines
A request from the US to provide the MFO with some 2,400 vaccines was received by the Israeli Defense Ministry and approved by the relevant legal authorities. An MFO official added that the force had requested vaccines for 1,200 personnel and was willing to pay for them but was still awaiting a response from Israel. The MFO was founded in 1981 to ensure the implementation of a 1979 peace treaty between Egypt and Israel. There are currently more than 1,100 military personnel in the force, including over 450 from the US.
