Israel to Send Animal Vaccine to Gaza after Border Breach

From Israel to Send Animal Vaccine to Gaza after Border Breach via Daily Alert:

Israel will deliver thousands of doses of vaccine for cattle and avian-borne diseases to Gaza. Gazans have brought in large numbers of camels, sheep, cows and chickens. Israeli authorities fear that with the new influx of livestock will come a wave of diseases not indigenous to Gaza, among them foot-and-mouth disease and avian flu that are known to exist in Egypt. Because of the proximity between Gaza and Israel, the diseases could easily spread into Israel.
