Beachside litterers get their coastal comeuppance

As Israelis flocked to the nation’s beaches this weekend to cool off from the August heat, Environmental Protection Ministry patrols tagged closely behind – catching litterers red-handed.

The ministry’s Green Police and National Unit for Coastal Environment Protection, in collaboration with the Israel Police, the Israel Nature and Parks Authorities and relevant local authorities, deployed 15 inspection teams throughout the country’s seaside hot-spots, as part of the 2016 Clean Coast program. From the country’s northernmost Mediterranean beaches to the Red Sea sands in the South, the teams singled out beach-goers for various environmental infractions.
