      Agrculture Ministry Fighting a Few Locust Swarms

      The Plant Protection Service of the Ministry of Agriculture has been working since Monday evening to fight the isolated swarms of locusts that have crossed the Egyptian border into the southwestern part of the Negev.

      It is estimated that northerly winds forecast for the Mediterranean coast will not allow large swarms of the insects to enter the area.
