Inspectors catch uninspected, unrefrigerated meat shipment from PA to Israel

Agriculture Ministry officials say they have intercepted an unregistered shipment of nine tons of beef, poultry and mutton, as well as over a ton of mutton fat, from the Palestinian Authority into Israel.

The meat was not refrigerated and had not undergone veterinary inspection either in the PA or in Israel, officials say.

The shipment “constituted a very real threat to the public,” the ministry says in a statement.

The smuggler of the meat, a 60-year-old resident of the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina, is under arrest.
