Israeli authorities claimed that 'certain conditions' need to be available to test anyone.

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Israeli Kan channel reported that the occupation state rejected a Palestinian request to test all Palestinian workers inside the Greenline before sending them back to the West Bank.

The International Relations Officer in the Israeli Ministry of Health told the Israeli channel that the PLO has sent an unofficial request to the occupation state to test Palestinian workers.

The Israeli authorities, according to Kan, rejected the request, claiming that the occupation state doesn’t have enough testing kits for the workers and that there are certain conditions that need to be available to test anyone.

The Israeli Ministry of Health has stated that two factories in occupied Jerusalem were closed after detecting several COVID-19 infections among Palestinians working in them. All Palestinian workers were sent back to the West Bank.
