Collection: Effects of Jiyeh Oil Spill and War in Lebanon (Photo & Video)

GP0ALB6A
Divers survey the area of an oil spill on the coast line of Byblos, Lebanon. The Jiyeh power station oil spill is an ongoing environmental disaster. The disaster was caused by the release of heavy fuel oil into the eastern Mediterranean after storage tanks at the thermal power station in Jiyeh, Lebanon were bombed by Israeli military in mid July. Fifteen thousand tons of heavy fuel have leaked and sunk into the sea. The spill has caused damage to endangered species and fragile coastal ecosystems. Greenpeace is in the region to identify and document environmental destruction caused by the Israel-Lebanon War. Along with the terrible humanitarian impacts, long-term environmental damage is an inevitable consequence of war.
