Israeli oil tanker indicted for polluting nature reserve

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Israeli state-owned Eilat Ashkelon Pipeline Company (EAPC) is indicted on charges linked to a massive 2014 oil spill that was one of the worst ecological disasters in occupied Palestine.

The company and several of its senior executives will be held responsible for “failures and neglect” that led to the massive spill, according to the indictment.

Israeli authorities said that some 5 million liters of crude oil were spilled in late 2014 when a pipeline belonging to EAPC ruptured, causing significant environmental damage to Wadi Araba desert and a Nature Reserve.
