Monday, health inspectors and control personnel in Russeifa, Zarqa seized and destroyed about 1.5 tons of poultry slaughtered in violation of the law.

They arrested the individual responsible for the incident. According to the inspectors, the individual conducted the slaughtering inside his home with the aim of distributing them to restaurants.
