In the accompanying video we see to what extent PA (Palestinian Authority)-based smugglers will go in order to bring their produce to market in Israel. This truck was apprehended at the Hizme Checkpoint, connecting northern Jerusalem to Shomron communities.
In this latest incident, alert border police noticed something suspicious with a fuel tanker, which we learn is actually used to smuggle illegal, unsupervised eggs originating in the PA, which often pose a risk to the public’s health.
One can also see a forged approval stamp with expiration dates and information pertaining to their point of origin are stamped on eggs in red ink.
