Israeli animal rights groups send food and medicine to Gaza ZooIsraeli animal rights groups have sent 30 truckloads of food and medicine into Gaza to help take care of sick and needy animals in distress, particularly those at Gaza Zoo.
The initiative, Let the Animals Live Israel, which is working together with a Palestinian animal welfare organization and other international groups, arranged for the delivery of food and medicine supplies in the wake of Operation Cast Lead.
Oats, hay and medicines were sent in the trucks. Eti Altman, spokeswoman of Let the Animals Live said: “In light of this humanitarian effort I have no doubt we can save many of the animals in the place. I am hoping that through the animals we will be able to draw the two sides closer together.”
