The Devil’s Spawn Sprays Toxic Pesticides on Palestinian Farmland

What these Jewish pigs are doing to the defenceless Palestinians is a clear testament that they are indeed the spawns of the devil. (quote by Jimi2)

Israeli planes have reportedly sprayed toxic chemical substances and dangerous pesticides on farmlands across the besieged Gaza Strip in yet another act of aggression against the besieged Palestinian coastal enclave.

Local sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Arabic-language Wafa news agency on Tuesday that the area between the southern Gaza Strip city of Khan Yunis and the central Gaza Strip city of Deir al-Balah have been affected as a result.

The sources added that Israeli military forces have threatened to open fire on shepherds and farmers if they approach those regions.

This is not the first time that Israeli aircraft poison Palestinian produce by spraying harmful substances on them.

On April 4, Israeli drones sprayed weed killers and pesticides on Palestinian crops in the eastern parts of the Gaza Strip.

Palestinian farmers, requesting anonymity, said melon, watermelon, okra, and wheat fields close to Israeli checkpoints were sprayed with “poisonous pesticides” and weed killers.

Local farmers said Israeli troops spray weed killers to dry wild plants around security fences in order to have clear vision to watch the area, but they usually spray dozens of meters around their targeted areas, killing and damaging Palestinian crops.

The continuing Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is putting the lives of people at risk, taking a heavy toll on the enclave’s agriculture sector.

Farmers are struggling to meet growing demands of 1.8 million Gazans who are living in the tight grip of the Israeli siege. They face many challenges due to shortages in farming equipment and more importantly, approved pesticides.

Due to the decline in production and Israel’s ban on the entry of basic commodities, Gazan farmers have resorted to the use of banned chemical substances to maximize crop yield. This poses a serious health hazard to both farmers and their consumers.

Meanwhile, the United Nations has expressed concerns over the excessive use of toxic pesticides by Gaza farmers. 

Many medical experts in Gaza are worried about a rise in the number of registered Gazan cancer patients, especially in the agricultural areas.

They warn that children are more susceptible to diseases such as leukemia than adults in such regions.

Gaza Strip has been under Israel’s blockade since June 2007. The crippling siege has caused a decline in living standards as well as unprecedented levels of unemployment and unrelenting poverty.

Israel launched its latest war on the Gaza Strip in early July 2014. Nearly 2,200 Palestinians, including 577 children, were killed in Israel’s 50-day onslaught. Over 11,100 others – including 3,374 children, 2,088 women and 410 elderly people – were also injured.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
