Against the background of the stormy weather that took place last weekend, huge amounts of oil and tar reached all of Israel’s shores, from pests to Rosh Hanikra. Senior officials from the Nature and Parks Authority referred to the phenomenon, calling it “the most serious ecological disaster we have ever known.” Article link https://www.news1.news/news/2021/02/materials-from-the-tar-disaster-were-discovered-in-the-autopsy-of-the-whales-body-that-was-swept-to-nitzanim-beach.html
The Minister of Environmental Protection, Gila Gamliel, also referred to the incident last Friday and announced that she would work to find those responsible for the serious failure.
Over the weekend, thousands of volunteers came to the country’s shores in order to help clean up the beaches. As a result of the spread of the toxic substances, many animals were harmed, including sea turtles, fish, poultry and many other species.
I hope you are in health and well.
