Ahh, the return of one of our most trusted weapons: Zionist Death Boars.TM
Wild boars released by Israeli settlers have attacked and seriously wounded a Palestinian man in the northern West Bank, Palestinian security sources said.
53-year-old Hikmat Abdul Mu’ti from the town of Beit Rima was hospitalized ten days ago after the animals attacked him while he was walking to his fields. According medical sources at Yasser Arafat Hospital in the city of Salfit, the man sustained a ‘deep wound,’ and is still in the hospital.
The security sources said that settlers from the Ariel settlement deliberately release wild boars, especially in Kana valley fields which belong to the West Bank village of Deir Istiya. In the past these boars have been known to damage crops in that valley and frequently attack farmers.
The Palestinian police reported about another similar attack by a boar against a woman and her child from the village of Sarta near Salfit.
Palestinian farmers appealed to the governor of Salfit and the Palestinian Ministry of Agriculture as well as humanitarian organizations to visit the area and see first hand the suffering and the material losses caused by the boars.
Of course, wild boars are known to inhabit the area, so I don’t dispute that it is possible the attacks took place. What is less clear is how the palestinians know the “settlers” released these boars, especially since raising pigs is against Jewish law, and anyone releasing wild boars would be at risk of suffering damage themselves since these boars are – you know- wild.
