Israel Accused of Recruiting “Spy Cows” in Palestine

Since its founding, Israel has faced threats; the fact that it has endured is a credit to the military and intelligence agencies’ expertise and resourcefulness. The Jewish state has frequently defeated its adversaries by employing cutting-edge strategies to avert attacks.

Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, the official newspaper of the Palestinian Authority, published a piece on January 4 about Israel’s most recent suspected strategy. Rushd Morrar, a resident of Khirbet Yanun in the West Bank, claims to have come across animals from Israeli settlements close to his village. Farm animals do have a tendency to roam, so it’s not too difficult to believe that. Morrar, though, thinks that these are not your typical cows.

The startled villager informed the media that Israel had trained and recruited these cows, as well as outfitted them with medallions that hold microphones and even cameras. This, he claims, permits the Israelis to watch every aspect, great and tiny of the many strategic targets that undoubtedly must exist in Khirbet Yanun.

Israel has already been charged with cleverly using animals against its neighbors. Morrar also claimed that settlers release wild boar to destroy Palestinian crops; this is an allegation that Mahmoud Abbas, the president of Palestine, has made often over the years.

In 2008, the official Palestinian news agency said Israel introduced rats, particularly bred or modified to be resistant to poison, in Arab areas of Jerusalem.

A government advisor for Iran even claimed that Israel spied on Tehran’s nuclear program using chameleons and lizards because their skin attracts atomic waves. But in truth, it does not.
