An Austrian animal rights organization has moved animals at a Gaza zoo to South Africa and Jordan to provide better protection and food for them. The organization moved the animals from a zoo in Khan Younis yesterday through the Israeli-controlled Eretz Crossing.
A group of veterinarians arrived in Gaza to assist with moving the animals from The South Zoo which was bombed by Israel during the 2014 offensive.

As a result, some of the animals died due to being exposed to toxic gases used.
Mohammed Ouwaida is the owner of the zoo yet the worsening conditions of the animals pushed some animals’ rights organizations to transfer animals outside the Gaza Strip.
