PALESTINE: Settlers poison grazing grounds

April 20, 2005

On April 12, a shepherd in Salfit in the West Bank found small pink pellets spread across his grazing ground. He took some of the pellets to the police. A Bir Zeit University analysis of the pellets found them to be wheat seeds boiled in rat poison, which villagers now fear is entering their milk. This follows a rash of sheep poisonings in late March in the nearby villages of At Tuwani, where 22 sheep were killed, and Mufakera. For more information, visit <>.
