Lebanese Dumping Sewage into Ayoun River on Border with Israel

Lebanese Dumping Sewage into Ayoun River on Border with Israel

Aaron Lerner Date: 3 November 2002

Israel Radio reported tonight that the Ministry of the Environment confirms
that the Lebanese are dumping sewage water in the Ayoun River on the border
with Israel. The Director of the Northern District of the Ministry of the
Environment, Shlomo Katz, asked senior officials to act to put an end to the
polluting. He said that the four tanks of sewage that the Lebanese dumped
flow down a route that ultimately reaches the Kinneret - a key source for
drinking water in the nation. The Israel Radio correspondent noted that
drinking water is also drawn from the river itself.

Israel Television Channel Two reported that the move by Lebanon is seen as
another attempt to draw Israel into conflict after the recent water pumping
operation failed to lead to an Israeli reaction on the ground.
