(Worthy News) – The Israel Defense Forces and Nature and Parks Authority on Saturday said the military will assist in cleaning up a major tar spill off of Israel’s coast, which an expert warned could be one of Israel’s worst-ever environmental disasters.
IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi and Nature and Parks Authority head Shaul Goldstein have agreed that “starting this week, thousands of IDF soldiers will assist workers and volunteers for the Nature and Parks Authority in mapping areas damaged by the tar pollution, cleaning beaches and in the removal” of pollutants, according to a joint statement.
The cause of the spill — involving dozens of tons of tar spilled at sea — was not definitively clear and was under investigation. Reports of the pollution first emerged on Thursday when a 17-meter dead baby fin whale washed up on Israel’s coast, along with other wildlife. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More…) ]
