Fatah cartoon demonizes Israeli soldiers as being like the Coronavirus

Cartoon and text posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

The cartoon shows two men holding doors closed on either side of a room with “West Bank” written on top of it in English. The man on the left has a keffiyeh (Arab headdress) wrapped around his head as he holds a door closed on three armed and uniformed Israeli soldiers with an Israeli flag. The man on the right is wearing a medical mask, hood, and gloves while holding a door closed on Coronavirus particles that are battering into it. In the top center of the room is the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas. The map is drawn in the shape of a Palestinian flag on a pole, with the stripes of the flag on the map.
