Claim: Israel injects palestinian prisoners with viruses
The Russian newspaper Pravda published a blood libel which claims that Israel injects Palestinians with dangerous viruses prior to their release from prison.
In the article Rania Saqa says that it is standard procedure for the authorities to inject the Palestinians before releasing them and she also claims that most former inmates dies after being release from Israeli jails.
“This is a racist, lowly and repulsive lie based solely on its authors’ sick imagination,” Yigal Palmor, a senior spokesman for the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
