(Worthy News) – Energy Minister Karine Elharrar announced Tuesday that Israel will stop issuing new permits for oil exploration on land.
“Starting today, no more licenses will be issued for oil exploration on land in the State of Israel,” she said at the opening of an annual conference on energy and the economy.
“Oil is a highly polluting fuel that has no place in a country that is doing everything to reduce the use of coal and understands that [fossil fuel] gas is also only an intermediate solution until we can rely on renewable energies,” said Elharrar, a Yesh Atid party member who was appointed minister in June.
