Oil Spill Off Israel’s Coast

An undisclosed freighter allegedly leaked oil off Israel’s coast last week, closing all beaches. The massive oil spill has caused enormous damage to the country’s marine life that experts say will take decades to repair. Israel placed a gag order on the identity of the vessel for now. Many sea turtles suffered tar poisoning as a result, and only a handful of them have survived. Hundreds of volunteers cleaned up beaches over the weekend, and many became ill after inhaling the fumes. All beaches are closed until further notice. Please pray for a miraculous recovery for the marine life off of Israel’s coast. Please also pray that Israel will bring to justice whoever is responsible for this disaster.
