A shipment of thousands of sheep and cattle is heading from Australia to Israel, after problems in the Red Sea forced it to return home, according to Calcalist.

Like many shipping companies and services, the Houthi blockade of the Red Sea forced a large shipment of sheep and cattle from Australia to Israel to turn around. It is now being sent in consignments around the African continent, and will arrive in 33 days.
