Tar globs pollute Israel's coast after oil spill – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Large globs of tar have been found on many stretches of Israel’s 190km (120 miles) Mediterranean coastline in what officials are calling one of the worst environmental disasters to hit the country.

The source of the pollution is thought to be an oil spill produced during a storm on 11 February from a ship some 50km (30 miles) off the coast. Satellite imagery and wave patterns are being used to trace the ship responsible.

I’m currently battling with suicidal thoughts and it’s weighing me down, ever since the demise of our parents in 2017 life has been very unbearable for me and my sister, we barely eat these days, most times we go days without food, my sister currently has stomach ulcer as a result of constant starvation, I know a lot of people would rain insults on me for doing this but I can no longer keep quiet and die in silence, I had a petty job that used to help put food on our table but I quit bcs the man I was working for was constantly harassing me sexually. As we speak we’ve barely eaten anything since yesterday, most times I’m being tempted to go into prostitution, bcs it breaks my heart seeing my only sister cry for food and I can’t help, pls nothing is too small to help us get some groceries, to stay alive this difficult period. I’d be forever grateful bcs I genuinely need help

How can an oil spill like this go unreported? There are many many people on each of these ships, usually also attached to a company on the ground, so not a single person thought to call the relevant authorities.
Unless it's some grand oil heist where they didn't want to be noticed.
