A new report coming out of Israel is revealing that water levels of the Sea of Galilee has declined to its lowest level in a hundred years! The Sea of Galilee, which is actually a lake, has suffered from four consecutive years of rain shortages, Amir Givati of Israel’s Water Authority told military radio. “The situation is serious,” he said. “The lake has fallen to its lowest level for a century.”

The level is 20 centimetres below what experts consider acceptable, the so-called “red line,” he added. The “regional drought affects the whole of the Middle East,” Givati added. The shortage of rainfall is affecting agriculture, the environment and animal life in the nearby area, he added. The rest of Israel is spared from shortages thanks to five seawater desalination plants built along the Mediterranean coast. They pump water through a pipeline system to homes throughout the country except for an area in northern Israel that is supposed to be supplied by the Sea of Galilee. CONTINUE
