Qalqilya zoo - a snackbars approach to zoos

Hordes of animals perished during the Israeli siege of the city; mostly
starving to death or dying from untreated diseases. However the zoo’s
location also played its part in the death toll. The back of the complex
is surrounded by three schools, which has caused problems, Dr. Khader
explains to me, when “tanks have come into the city, and the shabab
[Palestinian youths] have started to throw stones. The response when it
happened was tear gas, bombs, and bullets, many of which came over the
walls into the zoo. Most of the animals in that area died after
suffocating on the gas.”
