Israel Is Carrying Out Warfare Against Gaza by Spraying Crops with Harmful Chemicals

Israel has been spraying Palestinian crops in Gaza with herbicides to damage the vegetation since 2014.  Officially, the crop dusting is only done on the Israeli side of the border fence, but Palestinian farmers and the Red Cross testified that the damage can be seen deep inside Palestine.  Glyphosate is the main herbicide that is used, and can stay in the soil for months or even years, and may have negative health consequences for people who consume contaminated crops and/or inhale the herbicide.  Israel claims that clearing the brush near the border is necessary for security purposes.

The purpose of herbicides is to enable farmers to grow produce, but Israel is quietly using them to do just the opposite in the Strip — in the name of security.

Photographs of military armored vehicles uprooting and crushing trees and vegetation within the Gaza Strip are not foreign to Israelis, but what is less widely known is that since 2014 Palestinian fields are also being  razed through the use of herbicides sprayed from the air — as first publicized by the website 972. Officially, the spraying is only done on the Israeli side of the fence, but as Palestinian farmers on the other side, along with the Red Cross, have testified, the resulting damage can be seen deep inside Palestinian territory.
