Israel offers Egypt free meat; rejected

According to an Egyptian newspaper quoted by Palestine Today, Israel offered to send 150 tons of meat to Egypt free of charge.

Egypt has been suffering a major shortage of meat, and prices have soared recently.

The Egyptians spurned the offer, saying that it is an artificial crisis and asking consumers to boycott meat until the prices go down.

However, Egypt apparently has begun accepting some 15,000 heads of cattle from Ethiopia.
