Dairy Farmers to Strike Wednesday


Dairy products will not reach Israeli supermarket shelves Sunday, the organization representing dairy farmers announced Monday. The halt in supply will probably not affect consumers Wednesday, as supermarkets generally have a several day supply of products on hand – and the farmers will be back at work producing milk Thursday.

Instead of milking cows, farmers will participate in a mass demonstration in Jerusalem at 5 PM.
