Yishai: Salt Harvest to Save Dead Sea Hotels from Flood


Interior Minister Eli Yishai said, on Sunday, that he supports harvesting Dead Sea salts as a way to save hotels on the shore of "Pool No. 5" from flooding. Yishai said that harvesting the salts would have no adverse affects.

He added that the other alternative, relocating the hotels, would have caused environmental damage, damage to the tourism industry and the loss of jobs at the hotels being relocated.
