Health Ministry warns numerous northern rivers polluted

The Health Ministry warns of high level of pollution in numerous rivers in northern Israel and cautions that swimming in these waters could be dangerous.

The rivers include the Jordan River (from the Joseph bridge until the entry point to the Sea of Galilee); Snir; the Devorah waterfall in the Jilaboun river; the Yehudiya waterfall; the Zaki river until the entry point to the Sea of Galilee; the black waterfall in the El Al reserve; Majersa; Tzalmon; and Meshushim pools.

People swim in one of two freshwater pools under a large waterfall on a trail called the Upper Zavitan on July 4, 2006, at Yehudia, a park in the Golan Heights. (Phil Sussman /Flash90/File)
