Israel is giving "symbolic" amount of surplus COVID-19 vaccines to the Palestinians and to several countries, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office said in a statement on Tuesday.
An official said Honduras, which plans to relocate its embassy in Jerusalem, was among the recipients.
Israel has been importing Pfizer Inc and Moderna Inc vaccines and, according to the Health Ministry, has administered them to almost 50% of its 9 million population.
