How to avoid the food poisoning epidemic

Israeli military officials say they are treating a new outbreak of food poisoning in Gaza as a matter of routine.

The Israel Defense Forces said it is investigating the incident at a military checkpoint near Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip.

An Israeli military spokesperson told the Haaretz newspaper on Thursday that the military has not detected a new case of food contamination at the checkpoint.

The spokesperson added that “we take this incident very seriously and take action if we find evidence of a food contamination.”

The military has also said it will expand its medical evacuation services to help with the influx of Gazans to the Gaza Strip, which has become a humanitarian crisis.
