How Israel obstructs COVID-19 care in East Jerusalem

The COVID-19 pandemic is not an equalizer.

Rather, it has exposed systems of inequality in seemingly modern health care systems and brought already worn-down ones to the brink of collapse.

The case of occupied East Jerusalem is particularly revealing.

The pandemic unmasked and exacerbated the horrors of Israeli military occupation in the city, according to a new report by the Palestinian human rights group Al-Haq, the UK-based charity Medical Aid for Palestinians and the Jerusalem Legal Aid and Human Rights Center.

Israel occupied East Jerusalem in 1967 and formally annexed it in 1980.
