‘Plague’ of Locusts to strike Egypt region

Are we witnessing a repeat of Biblical history? Just as the Biblical plagues passed over the Children of Israel in Egypt under the reign of Pharaoh, authorities are reporting that a huge swarm of locusts headed towards the Middle East will pass over Israel.

According to a report from, Locust Watch, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, reported that “new swarms are forming in the Horn of Africa.” and that “The situation remains extremely alarming in the Horn of Africa, specifically Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia where widespread breeding is in progress and new swarms are starting to form, representing an unprecedented threat to food security and livelihoods at the beginning of the upcoming cropping season,” this according to Locust watch that posted on its website.

According to a three-month forecast, the threat will pass south of Israel before heading east towards Yemen, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, and Pakistan. BIN, reported that a similar swarm threatened Israel last year right before the Passover holiday but never materialized sparing the Nation of Israel then as well.
