JERUSALEM (Israel): Israeli prime minister (PM) Benjamin Netanyahu, Wednesday, received the first air-cargo with Pfizer anti-coronavirus (anti-Covid-19) vaccines.

According to a press release, a Dalsey, Hillblom and Lynn (DHL) air-cargo airplane landed at Ben-Gurion international airport in the city of Lod.

He said, “Here you see the forklift lowering the first vaccines. We will bring millions of vaccines here for the citizens of Israel.”

Israeli PM Netanyahu reassured, “I have been serving as PM of Israel for more than few years and this is one of the most moving moments that I have worked on very hard, for long months, with the health minister and the people of his ministry, in order to bring relief and a solution to the coronavirus pandemic.”

He apprised, “I had my 8th conversation last night with Pfizer chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) Albert Bourla. I would like to thank him and his team.”

Israeli PM Netanyahu narrated, “We are here today on a great holiday for the state of Israel. We see the end. What is important to me is that millions of Israelis be vaccinated. We still need to follow the rules regarding masks, hands and distancing, but the end is in sight.”

He asserted, “I believe in this vaccine. I expect that it will receive the appropriate permits in the coming days and I want the citizens of Israel to be vaccinated. In order to do this, I want to serve as an example for them and I intend to be the first in the state of Israel to be vaccinated with this vaccine.”

Israeli PM continued, “I am certain that many of you will also do so. We see the light at the end of the pandemic. This is a holiday for Israel.”

He sketched, “I would like to direct your attention to the sun that is shining, a beautiful sunny day in every sense. It is not self-evident that the state of Israel, a country with 9 million inhabitants, receives the vaccines at the same time as the leading countries of the world.”

Israeli PM Netanyahu concluded, “Now we will see to it that they reach our amazing logistical storage centre, which is a few minutes from here, with refrigeration and the highest medical standards in the world. We are setting out.”
