As a second wave of the deadly pathogen sweeps through Europe, Israeli scientists are now thought to be studying the content of the Chinese coronavirus vaccine. According to Israeli media reports, Mossad, the nation’s international intelligence agency, has successfully obtained a Chinese-developed new coronavirus vaccine. Israel’s Channel 12 said multiple government sources had indirectly confirmed Mossad had secured samples of the Chinese vaccine.

Mossad has recently teamed up with the Health Ministry in a bid to fight the pandemic.

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Mossad chief Yossi Cohen to be prepared.

The Israeli prime minister said: “We do not know what the next day, or the next month, will bring.

“Since you have acquired the experience, remember it, we may need it again.”

Israel’s use of its spy agency to obtain the Chinese vaccine may be an effort to circumvent having to conduct the vaccine transfer diplomatically.

Tel Aviv may have hoped Mossad’s quiet purchase of the vaccine would not draw the attention of the US to their dealings with Beijing.

Obtaining the Chinese vaccine could complicate matters with the US amid increased tensions between Washington and Beijing.

Israeli is also developing its own coronavirus vaccine, called Brilife.

Israeli defense minister Benny Gantz said recently: “This is a day of hope for the citizens of Israel.

“Just two months ago, I received the first bottle of the vaccine.

“Today, we already have 25,000 vaccine doses.”

A senior official with knowledge of the Israeli Ministry of Health said that nation is trying to acquire potential new coronavirus vaccines from other nations.
