Stormy Weather Causes Pollution in Kishon River

The Kishon River was polluted on Friday with fuels and oils, after the courtyard of a nearby oil refinery was flooded with water, due to the stormy weather, and the hazardous material flowed into the river.

Representatives of the Kishon River Authority and the Ministry of Environmental Protection came to the scene and were attempting to minimize the damage caused to the river.
