Israel is on a locust alert as swarms of the destructive bugs descend on neighboring Egypt ahead of the Passover holiday.
Israel’s Agriculture Ministry set up an emergency hotline Monday and is asking Israelis to be vigilant in reporting locust sightings to prevent an outbreak.
Swarms were earlier reported to have reached Egypt’s Red Sea city of Zafarana, some 200 kilometres from Cairo, and then the Upper Egyptian city of Qena where locusts appeared in at least three major villages.
Locusts have a devastating effect on agriculture by quickly stripping crops.
Swarms of locusts have descended on Egypt, raising fears they could spread to Israel.
The locust alert comes ahead of the Passover festival, which recounts the biblical story of the Jewish exodus from Egypt. According to the Bible, a plague of locusts was one of 10 plagues God imposed on Egyptians for enslaving and abusing ancient Hebrews.

If you refuse to let them go, I will bring locusts into your country tomorrow.
The attacks of locusts in Egypt is only one of many signs that we are approaching the end game on planet Earth.
First, the last and final antichrist has to enter the world stage. Than the true Messiah will return, Jesus of Nazareth.
There are terrible times ahead of us:
I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a quarter of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
Behold: If you give your life to Jesus the Messiah, you will escape the coming wrath of God.
