Kicking off Operation "Hamishi Hofshi" ("Free Thursdays"), the Environmental Protection Ministry announced on Wednesday that for the duration of the summer, Israel Nature and Parks Authority beaches will be free of charge on Thursdays. The beaches include those at Achziv, Beit Yannay, Palmahim and Ashkelon.

In addition to free entrance, the beaches will feature free educational activities and guided tours focusing on the uniqueness of each of the sites, the Environment Ministry said.

Opening these beaches for free on Thursday is part of Environmental Protection Minister Amir Peretz's ultimate goal of connecting environmental and social justice. Ministry officials said they expect that this decision will allow many more citizens to connect to nature.
