PA Minister: Israel releases “lethal pigs” on Palestinian farms to destroy crops and scare Palestinians

“[PA Minister of Agriculture Walid] Assaf said that the ministry is working to eradicate the pigs that settlers and the occupation release in the direction of [Palestinian] farmers’ lands, and that are intended to destroy agriculture crops and scare the defenseless inhabitants. [He] said: ‘The Ministry of Agriculture has obtained the necessary medications to fight the pigs’ spread, but the Israeli side does not permit bringing them in. Likewise, we are in touch with the [Palestinian] National Security Force in order to devise a plan for fighting the spread of these lethal pigs.’”
