Oil Spill in Haifa Bay

A ship owned by Petroleum and Energy Infrastructures Ltd (PEI) struck an old underwater oil pipe in the Haifa bay when it was attempting to dismantle it.  Oil leaked into the Mediterranean Sea in the Haifa area as a result. While it is not a huge disaster, it did manage to cause some environmental damage and beaches in the area are closed.  Haifa is already an area noted for higher pollution and a significantly higher incident of birth defects related to pollution within Israel. Please pray for a quick clean up of the oil, and for marine life to be minimally hurt.  Please also pray that Israel will hold those accountable who are responsible for all kinds of pollution within the country, which is clearly harming its citizens.
