  • Israel’s authorities warned people on Sunday to stay away from the beaches on its Mediterranean shore, as thousands of laborers and volunteers worked to clean a massive tar slick.
  • The tar was a result of “dozens to hundreds of tonnes” of oil being unloaded from a ship.
  • Israel’s Nature and Parks Authority has called the spill “one of the most serious ecological disasters” in the country’s history.
