On April 8, 2020 Antifa Toronto, a pro-Palestinian radical left-wing group, shared on its Facebook page an article by the Jerusalem Post titled “Israel brings 1 million masks from China for IDF soldiers.” Antifa Toronto commented with a one-word, “Heinous.”
Here are excerpts from the Jerusalem Post article:
A plane carrying over a million surgical masks for the IDF landed in Ben-Gurion Airport Tuesday night, in an operation aimed to protect soldiers on the frontlines of preventing the spread of the coronavirus [COVID-19]… The IDF has been playing a central role in the fight against coronavirus in Israel. According to an IDF spokesperson, within the last week, soldiers have packed approximately 1,610,000 food and holiday food packages for Israelis; distributed food packages to 118,635 citizens; and distributed a further 15,000 relief boxes to residents of Bnei Brak, which included dry goods, fruit, vegetables and toilet paper. 18,000 IDF commanders and soldiers are involved in the efforts against the coronavirus in Israel, continuing to assist civilians as required.
