Eighth Plague – Locusts – Invade Israel

A swarm of several thousands locusts that descended on Egypt began to cross into southern Israel Monday night, but agricultural officials said that pesticides will limit the damage.

A small swarm of the destructive cousin to the grasshopper was discovered on the Israeli side of the border with Egypt for the first time in eight years. They are expected to be exterminated Monday night or early Tuesday morning, Ynet reported.

Egypt has suffered millions of dollars in crop damage from more than 30 million locusts that swarmed over parts of Egypt, including Cairo and Giza.

Locusts were the eighth plague that God set on ancient Egypt prior to the freedom of Jews on the Passover, which this year begins in three weeks.
