Police foil meat smuggling from Ramallah

Police made two large-scale seizures of unlicensed meat in recent days, as smugglers seek to cash in on increased pre-Passover demand.

On Tuesday, Judea and Samaria District police and IDF soldiers manning the Metzukei Dragot checkpoint on Route 90 north of Ein Gedi found a false wall on a truck with Israeli license plates. Behind it they discovered more than a ton and a half of meat which the driver had bought in Ramallah, and planned to smuggle into Israel where he would sell it at a major mark-up.
