Jordan announced that Israel has compensated it for the pollution of the Yarmouk River, Israel Radio reported on Wednesday evening. Musa al-Jumani, the head of Jordan's Water Authority, told reporters that Israel gave Jordan water from the Kinneret as compensation for the polluted river water. According to the radio station, the contamination was discovered last week, and an investigation found that sewage near the river's source, within Israel's territory, had caused the pollution.
