In the Negev and Gaza was a locust invasion. Originally insects noticed in the area of Kadesh Barnea, then in the vicinity of the village Kamhin (Ramat Negev).
The Ministry of Agriculture of Israel and the Egyptian authorities are actively fighting locusts. But the means to fight a large swarm of insects is not enough. We need to come up with some other method, although in 2004 they have been subjected to the invasion of locusts.
