JNS.org Despite a string of Palestinian terror attacks on Israelis in recent days, which have resulted in dozens of injuries and two deaths, the Israeli government on Sunday transferred Ebola screening equipment to the Palestinian Authority and Hamas.

The equipment was transferred after a Palestinian request and will be used to diagnose the Ebola virus among people entering the West Bank from Jordan and the Gaza Strip through the Rafah Crossing, Yedioth Ahronoth reported.

The equipment includes a special thermometer, laboratory kits, and protective suits. Beyond the Rafah Crossing, Hamas is solely responsible for handling the equipment in Gaza. Israel is also supplying the Allenby border crossing with Jordan with the detection devices.

The Israeli civilian committee is also holding regular meetings in Israel with the Palestinian Minister of Civil Affairs and representatives from Gaza’s Health Ministry regarding the prevention of the spread of Ebola in the West Bank, Gaza, and Israel should an infected person be discovered.

    Hashem should punish all the Arab terrorists and they should die from Ebola, before they get a chance to kill
    any more Israelis and Jews.

    How bizarre. On the other hand it shows that Israel has compassion, humanity and courage. BH in Iowa says “Feeding the hand that bites you” surely it is the other way round. Cannot the PA, Hamas and the rest of this rotten lot understand that they have more to gain by having good relations with Israel than being committed to its destruction

    This is a necessary prophylactic measure to protect the people living in the region from the speed of the Ebola virus. Israel is sensibly protecting herself!

    No good deed by Israel shall go unpunished.
