Panel rules to save Ayalon Cave and its unique dwellers from runoff water plan

An underground cave cut off from the world for five million years and inhabited by strange and unique creatures that have adapted to sulfurous waters and complete darkness will not be included in a plan to absorb seasonal floodwaters from the Ayalon River basin in central Israel, the National Infrastructure Committee decides.

The committee is looking for a place to which surface runoff water can be directed in the winter. This is in connection with plans for an additional rail line in the area that would require narrowing a section of the Ayalon River.

The decision, which spares the cave from being designated as a runoff water collection point, follows a long campaign to save the Ayalon Cave.

Security officials believe many Gilboa prisoners knew of escape plan

Security officials suspect that many prisoners in the Gilboa Prison may have known of the escape last week of six Palestinian security prisoners ahead of time, according to Hebrew media reports.

In addition, according to the reports, a prison guard who was responsible for maintaining the prison’s sewer system knew of recent blockages in the system due to sand, but did not report the blockages to the prison authorities.

The six fugitives — two of whom are still at large — escaped by digging through the concrete and metal rebar flooring in their bathroom and removing a slab that led to a series of gaps in the prison’s structure. They used these to leave the compound underground and then tunneled their way up to a road on the south side of the facility.

First Bahrain ambassador presents credentials to President Herzog

Khaled Al Jalahma, the first-ever Bahrain ambassador to Israel, presents his credentials to President Isaac Herzog at the President’s Residence in Jerusalem — one day after the first anniversary of the Abraham Accords.

“What a wonderful coincidence to have this event mark the first anniversary of the #Abraham_Accords,” Jalahma tweeted in both English and Hebrew on his way to the event. “I’m so proud that we took this brave step last year to work hand-in-hand towards peace, security and stability in the world.”
