Residents of Tel Aviv and neighboring localities complain of a strong odor of unknown origin. According to them, for several hours they smell, like the smell of chlorine.
Source of the smell is not yet known, but the Ministry of Health says that the health and lives of citizens are not threatened.
Several dozen people complained of pain in the eyes and other discomfort, probably related to smell.
Radio station "Kol Yisrael" reported that the initial odor associated with drilling wells near the coast, where the search is conducted gas fields. But then, this has been disproved.
The Ministry of Environment has not commented on the situation.
