More than 40 zoo animals evacuated from Gaza Strip

More than 40 zoo animals evacuated from Gaza StripMore than 40 animals, including five lions, were evacuated from squalid conditions in a Gaza Strip zoo on Sunday to be taken to Jordan, an animal welfare group said. The Rafah zoo in the southern Gaza Strip is the oldest in the enclave, which has been under an Israeli blockade for more than 10 years. The animals were not in great shape, but were stable enough to be transported to a reserve in Jordan, some 300 kilometres (190 miles) from the Palestinian enclave, said Martin Bauer, spokesman for the Vienna-based welfare group.
