Destroying Palestinian Agriculture? Israeli Planes Spray Herbicides Inside Gaza for the Fourth Time This Year

Israeli planes have been reported spraying herbicides over land inside the Gaza Strip on four occasions in 2017, including twice in the last two days.

Israeli planes sprayed herbicides inside the Gaza Strip for the second day running on Wednesday and the fourth time this year, according to local farmers and Israeli rights NGO Gisha. A video published on Wednesday, allegedly of the crop-dusting, shows a plane flying low and spraying over farmland.

Palestinians who reported the incident said that the planes had dusted near the Gaza border fence, and the Gaza Ministry of Agriculture is investigating the extent of the damage from the herbicides sprayed over the last two days. Around 840 acres of crops were damaged during the last round of spraying in January 2017, according to Gisha.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If the Israeli destruction and poisoning Palestinian agriculture is not a war crime, I sure as heck don't know what is.

Not only is it a war crime, it is also stupid considering the many aspects of spraying herbicides (residue, drift, etc) which will not only affect the current occupants but also future intended residents of a region. But, to the neocons lives don't matter, do they!
