The Environmental Protection Ministry said there is no danger to area residents as a result of the explosion at a Mekorot drilling facility in the South on Monday. After exploring the area, a team of ministry workers determined that the risk range is only 200 meters, and that the closest residential population is five kilometers away from the site.

The staff members provided instructions to police officers on site as to how to properly protect themselves and enter the facility, the ministry added.
