Massive fire reported at petrochemical plant in port of Haifa
News sources report that a fire broke out in the port of Haifa and left no casualties.
A fire broke out at a petrochemical plant in the Israeli-controlled port of Haifa in occupied Palestine, news sources reported on Tuesday.
Iranian news agency Mehr indicated, citing preliminary reports, that the incident left no casualties, and firefighters were dispatched to the location to extinguish the fire.
It is noteworthy that such incidents have increased in the occupied lands.
In late June, a large fire broke out at an industrial complex in Haifa, which houses hazardous materials and is located near residential buildings, the Israeli "Israel" Hayom newspaper reported, noting that there were no casualties.
"Firefighters from the Haifa fire station as well as teams from other brigades are working on controlling the blaze," the newspaper said. "There are reports about explosions amid the fire, and three people have been rescued after they did not wake up from the blaze."
Israeli media reported on June 11 the mysterious outbreak of fire in 18 buses at a central station in the city of Safad in Al-Jalil, northern occupied Palestine.
Media outlets reported that firefighters put out the fire with no reported injuries, without any further detail on the incident.
Some outlets pointed out that the occupation suspected that the fire was premeditated and that the reasons were under examination, while the Israeli-controlled Safad Municipality stated that "the matter is related to a criminal act."
In late May, a fuel depot at the Sonol oil facility in Haifa caught fire.
