After a massive underground oil pipeline burst south of Haifa Monday evening, sand and dirt barriers were set up throughout the night along the path of the oil flow, and in the direction of the beach, the Haifa fire department said on Tuesday. As of Tuesday morning, said Haifa and rescue spokesman Hezi Levy, all of the spillways were already covered and were awaiting organized removal of the contaminated sand. Responsibility for the continuation of the emergency management was officially transferred into the hands of KZA, the oil company, the Environmental Ministry and Israel Police.
