ISRAEL - Highly pathogenic avian influenza has hit another turkey flock in the same area as previous recent outbreaks.

Bird flu (avian flu) has made yet another appearance at a poultry farm in the Sharon region, according to Arutz Sheva.

This is the same area - the northern part of the coastal plain - where previous outbreaks have taken place over the past couple of weeks. This time, 37,000 infected turkeys will have to be killed and buried, in accordance with protocol in order to prevent further spreading of the disease.

According to the Ministry of Agriculture, so far 157,000 birds in the Sharon region have had to be destroyed.
