Lebanon oil spill crisis
28 July 2006 7:24 PM GMT
The Lebanese government has appealed for help to clean up a huge oil
spill along its coastline created after Israel bombed a power plant.
The environment ministry says up to 30,000 tonnes of oil flooded into
the sea after Israeli jets attacked storage tanks at the Jiyyeh power
plant south of Beirut on July 13 and 15.
The spill has affected more than 100 kilometres of the Lebanese coast.
Yacoub al-Sarraf, the Lebanese environment minister, said: "We have
never seen a spill like this in the history of Lebanon. It is a major
"The equipment we have is for minor spills. We use it once in a blue
moon to clean a small spill of 50 tonnes or so. To clean this whole
thing up we would need an armada."
The EU commission said the Lebanese authorities had asked for "urgent"
assistance to clean up the oil.
Stavros Dimas, the EU environment commissioner, said: "Wars do cause
enormous human suffering as we are witnessing now in Lebanon. But
another aspect is also the significant environmental destruction caused
"[The spill] could affect the livelihood and health of the Lebanese and
people in neighbouring countries as well as the status of the marine
environment in the region."
The government has also asked the UN environmental protection agency to
assist in the clean-up operation.
Al-Sarraf said the cost of removing the oil could reach $40-50million.
An Israeli warship damaged by a Hezbollah missile on July 15 may also
have spilled oil into the sea, according to the environment ministry.
One of the main problems is that an Israeli air and sea blockade of
Lebanon, in place since the war began on July 12, is hampering both the
clean-up and the delivery of equipment.
Sarraf said: "To really clean it up we need access to the sea, which we
"We need more equipment and mobilisation but for that we need the
hostilities to end."
Local environmentalists say the marine ecosystem could take years to
BEIRUT: Who hasn't been complaining of the awful smells that have been
engulfing the capital for the past few days? Repugnant smells coming
from the direction of Beirut Port have been emanating from a large ship
carrying cattle and which was set to leave the capital's seaport on
Wednesday night, an official source at Beirut's municipality said.
The accumulated manure of the cows since their arrival to Lebanon has
produced the odors, he said. These smells were accentuated because of
the wind's direction from North to East, he added.
The ship, called Kounouz (which means Treasures in Arabic), which
transported around 7,000 "wild cows" coming from Brazil reached Beirut
on Tuesday, according to an official source at Beirut's harbor. Since
then, Beirutis have been complaining about the nauseous smells in their
The article goes on to mention "Following the enlargement of Beirut's
harbor last year, the ship had been transporting large amounts of
cattle to Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan via Beirut's seaport almost every
Am I the only one who sees what an immense opportunity that has wafted
it's way to us? We no longer need the U.N. or Berri's 'Dialogue' to
solve our problems. It goes like this:
We transport our bovine friends to the border area of the Shebaa farms.
Immediately, upon smelling the biological warfare that we have thrown
unto them, the Israelis immediately retreat to their side of the
border. They can't attack us because after all, cows are natural.
Hezbollah, all of a sudden no longer has an excuse to keep it's arms,
as now Shebaa is 'liberated' and can be farmed once again. Luckily we
have a few hundred cows to fertilize the soil.
Nasrallah, with nothing else to do now, flees to Ramallah to set up the
opposition to the new Hamas government.
Perhaps we can also transport a few cows to Baabda. Just a thought.
Father Mother God in the name of Jesus, Buddha, Yogananda, Kwon Yin,
Elijah, all your masters and angels and beings, bring peace now to all
through Your divine intervention.
