One person was seriously injured and another suffered moderate wounds on Thursday when a container full of dangerous chemicals exploded near Moshav Sde Ilan, north of Nazareth. As yet, it was unclear what caused the explosion, which is currently being defined as a "work accident." Magen David Adom paramedics were on the scene treating the casualties, while police and environmental protection units were en route to begin emergency measures.
