Environmental Protection Minister Gilad Erdan requested that National Infrastructures Minister Uzi Landau order the immediate cessation of oil drilling in the “Leviathan” reserve in the Mediterranean sea, reported Israel Radio on Thursday.

Arden said that the global experience proves that incidents of oil spills and contamination cause serious damage to marine ecosystems and fishing zones, harm tourism and leisure activity and paralyze national infrastructures among them, desalination plants, ports, and power plants.
