Is Lebanon using biological weapons against Israel? Ha'aretz reports that
Israel suspects that Lebanon dumped sewage water in the Ayun river in south Lebanon, which flows into Israeli territory and connects to the Jordan river and Lake Kinneret.
Aniela Goldberg, a resident of the northern town of Metula, saw three of four tankers pouring fluids north of the town, in Lebanese territory on Thursday. "I could see the truck on the road dumping fluid on the side of the road. I couldn't see where everything went because of the high vegetation," Goldberg said.
At this stage, it is not clear whether the fluid dumped is sewage water and whether any damage has been caused.
Hebrew website Walla.co.il reports that the Israeli Environment Ministry confirmed that the fluid was sewage, and that this would be detrimental to an important source of drinking water [cheers to an anonymous LGF reader for the link]
Perhaps we should call this biuvlogical warfare.
("Biuv" is Hebrew for "sewage")
