Ministry to Submit Proposal that Includes Budget for Immediate Rehabilitation of Israeli Beaches
The proposal will include funds for manpower and for national preparations for treatment of marine and coastal oil pollution, as well as for promotion of a law that would ensure the country is prepared for and can respond to oil pollution events. Israeli beaches were hit by a severe environmental disaster when tar began washing ashore from the Mediterranean last week. The tar is believed to be the result of an unreported oil leak some 50 km off the Israeli shore.
