Chairman of the Joint Committee for Health and Environment MK Dov Henin (Hadash) demanded Thursday that the authorities urgently clarify the source of the acrid smell in the Tel Aviv region, and take the necessary steps to protect the public.

"This is further proof that we must act meticulously and carefully on environmental issues, when dealing with actions that could endanger the environment and public health," Henin said.
