Israel’s largest supermarket chain Shufersal announces that it is putting a limit on the purchase of basic goods, including water and eggs, as Israelis are continuing to stock up on food supplies on the fourth day of the war with the Hamas terror group.

Israeli shoppers going into Shufersal stores will be able to buy up to two six-packs of 1.5 liter water bottles, a rack of 30 eggs or two cartons of 12 eggs, three units of price-controlled milk, and two loaves of price-controlled bread.

The move comes after the Home Front Command issued a recommendation to stock up on water, food, and other supplies to last at least three days. The notice prompted Israelis to quickly crowd supermarkets and empty their shelves.

"Out of responsibility towards all customers, and due to heavy demand, supply difficulties and a partial lack of products in the stores, we have decided to limit the purchase of basic food products such as water, eggs, bread and milk,” says Shufersal CEO Uri Watermann. “At the same time we’re working continuously to get additional goods into the stores,” Times of Israel reports.
