Israel to import chickens from Turkey

the region, Israel has decided to import 25 million eggs from Turkeyâ€”15
million for home consumption and 10 million for industrial processing.

In many settlements along the Israeli-Lebanese
border, poultry is the main agricultural sector
, and this region is the country's major supplier of eggs and poultry.
Many coops were damaged during the war and the shelling for nearly a month
caused a reduction in productivity. Israeli growers maintain that full-scale
production will return to normal within 2-3 weeks, noting that the import
license given to distributors and local production will not cause any shortage
in the near future.
