Palestine and Israel share bird flu knowledge
A delegation of veterinarians from the Palestinian
Authority is visiting Israel this week as guests of the Israel Veterinary
Services, aimed at extending the Palestinian veterinarians' knowledge and
experience in handling and challenging the bird flu.
The Palestinian members of the delegation will stay in
Israel one week and will visit laboratories at the Veterinary
as well as in field
laboratories, and participate in seminars focusing on techniques of diagnosing
, if and when the flu will erupt again in chicken farms in the Palestinian Authority
Their visit is a result of preliminary negotiations between Israel and the
Palestinian Authority, becoming an "urgent issue" in view of the fact that Egypt
reported recently of cases of bird flu "and the fear that the disease will
penetrate to Israel and the Palestinian Authority," according to an announcement
of the Israel Ministry of Agriculture.
