Seven hundred kilos of meat smuggled in 30 crates via a car from the Hebron area without refrigeration or veterinary supervision has been intercepted in the Beit Shemesh area en route to restaurants in the center of the country. The Agriculture Ministry said on Thursday that intelligence data helped them catch the violators. There is a strict ban on the movement of animal products from the Palestinian Authority to Israel due to concern for public health. The public were warned to buy meat products only if the original package is closed, clean and with labels of the production and expiration date.
