Palestine Today reports that 125 Gazans were injured, one seriously, as people tried to slaughter cows and bulls in the streets of Gaza for the Eid al-Adha holiday.
EOZ Meanwhile, so many people slaughtered cattle in the already overcrowded streets of Gaza that people were complaining that it is a health issue, as the slaughterers were leaving blood and bones and animal skins on the street. The carcasses were attracting dogs and mosquitoes.
The Hamas government did nothing to regulate or control this mass slaughter. While Gaza has five official slaughterhouses where people could go for a nominal fee, the waiting list was hours long so many Gazans decided they would prefer to slaughter animals on the street.
