Illegal dumping into the Yarkon River – by Israeli police!
Spotted today along the Yarkon River from Tel Aviv’s port by Zalul’s Deputy Director, Sagit Rogenstein, Israeli policemen dumping what they described as “sand” into the River. She took this picture with her cellphone before running over to find out what was going on since any and all dumping of solid waste into the Yarkon (and all of Israel’s rivers, for that matter) is illegal unless you hold a permit, which is essentially impossible to get.
Pretending that they didn’t hear her yelling and then locking the gate behind them from where they accessed the river bank only made the situation more suspicious. Finally, when it was impossible for them to ignore her any longer, they denied they were doing anything wrong and claimed that it was private police business.
Zalul has the photographs, name of the detective doing the dumping, and the car license plate number and will be continuing the investigation into this mysterious and suspicious activity.
