Report: Israel to pay Russia millions for Syria vaccines as part of swap deal

Israel will pay Russia millions of dollars for coronavirus vaccines intended for Syria as part of the prisoner exchange deal between the two countries, a U.S.-based political blog ‘Tikun Olam’ reported Saturday.

The blog said the vaccines demand are in addition to the return of two Druze prisoners and two shepherds detained by Israel back to Syria.

The swap deal was made in an effort to free an Israeli woman who crossed into Syria and was detained by local authorities. Tikun Olam said the woman deliberately crossed the frontier as an act of rebellion against her ultra-Orthodox family.
