The Health Ministry called for a halt to sailing on the salty section of the Yarkon River in Tel Aviv, due to pollution. The ministry said that in addition to a level of pathogens higher than permitted in the water, the beginning of the rainy season reduces the water quality and makes the autumn and winter unsuited to sailing on the Yarkon. When summer comes, if bacteriological tests show it is safe, the ministry will again consider permitting sailing.
