Greenpeace: Baseless claim oil spill is terror minimizes environmental issue

Greenpeace blasts Environmental Protection Minister Gila Gamliel for her claims that the oil spill that polluted most of the country’s beaches was an Iranian terror attack on Israel.

The group says Gamliel’s assertion of a terror attack “is outrageous and factually baseless at this stage.”

It says that in making the claim, the minister “is minimizing the well-known and widespread phenomenon of marine pollution by ship oil spills. The minister’s conduct on the matter smells of electioneering and an attempt to score political points over an ecological disaster.”
