300 protest in J'lem against set up of gas distillation facilities
Some 300 demonstrators from northern Israeli villages of Yokneam, Megido and Emek Hefer are protesting in front of the Energy and Water Ministry in Jerusalem against the intent to construct natural gas facilities in northern Israel.


Liron Shapira, a representative of the protesters, said: "We object the plan by which two distillation factories of natural gas would be constructed on land, because it involves risks for the population. The solution is distillation of gas in the sea, as done all over the world, and we will not accept any other option." (Noam Dvir)
