Gaza food shortage drives dogs into Israel

By Haaretz – 22 July 2010

In the last couple of months, residents of the Israeli villages along the Gaza Strip complain about dozens of stray dogs, some possibly diseased, fleeing the Gaza area into Israel, passing underneath the “security fence.”  They arrive  in groups and cause damage by attacking farm animals, Haaretz reports.

IOA Editor: The story falls short of connecting the flight of the dogs with the severe Gaza-wide food shortage that would cause them to migrate en masse.
