Minefields around Israel's Red Sea port of Eilat cleared
An operation to clear minefields near Israel's Red Sea port of Eilat has been successfully completed. The Mine Clearing Authority (MCA) completed the clearance of 123 acres of minefields in the vicinity of Eilat. "The Eilat area is mine-free. The area was a 'ticking bomb' for decades and will soon be utilised by the state for the benefit of civilians," Marcel Aviv, deputy director of MCA, said.
