Israel’s largest food manufacturer Tnuva is setting up a NIS 15 million aid fund to help rehabilitate dairy farms \in communities near the Gaza border that have been damaged by the onslaught of the Hamas terror group.

The Iran-backed terror group’s murderous assault on the country, in which some 2,500 Hamas terrorists streamed into Israel on October 7 and murdered some 1,400 people, mostly civilians, and blew up and torched swaths of kibbutzim, villages and towns, has caused widescale devastation of fields and damaged infrastructure of dairy farms, putting a strain on milk production.

Tnuva said the fund will help, among others, in the rebuilding of farm structures, milking rooms, and milk cooling tanks, as well as the repair of electricity networks and cow feeding equipment.

“We work with hundreds of dairy farms and other farmers across Israel, who make it possible for us to produce and supply vital products and maintain food security in Israel,” says  Haim Gavrieli, chairman of the Tnuva group. “We will do everything in our power to aid in the recovery of the communities of the region and the dairy farms’ resumption of production.”

The fund is directed to dairy firms that have suffered direct damage from the war with Hamas and are located in communities including Nir Oz, Nir Am, Nir Yitzhak, Nahal Oz, Kissufim, Ein Hashlosha, Alumim, Yad Mordechai, Gevim, and Moshav Yachini.
