Three tons of treif meats were apprehended, confiscated and destroyed in a joint operation involving the Chief Rabbinate of Israel and Ministry of Agriculture inspectors. The meat was apprehended in the Israeli Arab municipality of Kfar Kassam. Yassam commandos took part in the raid along with other Israel Police units.
The meat was found in a warehouse for meat distribution packed in cartons marked as kosher, intended for distribution nationwide. It is believed the cartons were collected from trash receptacles.
Also found on location was 300kg of frozen meat which originated from PA areas.
Mashgichim nationwide are urged by the Chief Rabbinate to be extremely vigilant when accepting meat and other items, to verify the integrity of shipments.
