July 29 2006

Israeli air strike on Lebanese power stations "Jiyah" has caused massive environmental disaster in the Mediterranean. Beautiful beaches once covered with a layer of oil.

According to eyewitnesses, the waves strand hundreds of dead fish. Experts have estimated that the film of spilled 110,000 barrels of oil lasted for 130 kilometers.

According to the mayor of Beirut Abdel Monema Ariss, Kuwait sent to Lebanon 10 trucks with reagents and equipment for collecting oil. However, the team of ecologists can not get close to shore because of constant shelling, reports AP.
