Thirty rare Alpine goats, that were stolen by Arabs from a Jewish-owned farm near Modi’in three weeks ago, were recovered before dawn Thursday in a joint operation mounted by Southern District Border Police’s Central Unit, accompanied by warriors from the Engineering Corps’ 601st Battalion, and the farm’s owners.

HaShomer HaChadash, a nonprofit that helps protect Jewish farms from theft and vandalism, announced Thursday that the goats – which had been taken from the Ofaimme Farm – were recovered in a raid “deep inside the territories.”
