Speaking of pigs…
Via The Independent:
Reports have emerged that Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority, claimed Israel was using wild pigs against Palestinians in the West Bank.
Mr Abbas’s allegation was made during a speech at a conference in Ramallah on Friday night, according to the Jerusalem Post.
“Every night they release wild pigs against us”, the president was quoted as saying, before adding “Why are they doing this?”. […]
The accusation of using wild pigs as a weapon is not new. In the past, the Palestinian authority has claimed that the IDF and Israeli settlers have released the animals to intimidate farmers and damage crops.
