Palestinian leaders smear Israel, accuse it of attacking with coronavirus

They blame Israel for a number of reasons. First and foremost, it supports their general narrtive that Israel is responsible for all the ills of the world. Jew hatred par excelllance. Secondly, because the PA has systematically failed to create any medical infrastructure. It is completelt unprepared to deal with a potentially huge medical crisis. In order to deflect the blame that will undoubtably come, the PA leadership automatically blames Israel. Thirdly, because they can! In the same way as Israel ignores the constant incitement in the PA schools and media, the PA knows that Israel will also ignore this threat. Note the steps Gal Berger says Israel has threatened to take. Not stopping the coordination. Not stopping the training of the nurses and the doctors. To stop the PA operating in areas in which it should not be operating anyway.
