Pollution alert in Galilee and the Golan Heights

The Ministry of Environmental Protection announced very high concentrations of respiratory particles in the Western Galilee, the Upper Galilee and the Golan Heights.

The high air pollution is connected to easterly flows of air and the carrying of dust from east to north of the country.

The ministry of Environmental Protection has been joined by the Ministry of Health in recommending that sensitive sectors of the population – especially those suffering from heart or lung conditions, the elderly, children, and pregnant women – refrain from strenuous physical activity outside.
