"The Arabic language newspaper Al-Quds al-Arabi, published in London, reported Monday that Israel is exporting toxic chemical waste into areas under Palestinian Authority control."

"According to the report, Palestinians discovered the waste after nauseating and choking odors spread around the area of the Tulkarm refugee camp.

Tulkarm Municipality medical teams and representatives from the Palestinian Authoritys health ministry rushed to the scene and found barrels of chemical waste. The Palestinians took samples of the waste for examination and to help determine the scope of damage it could have caused.

The Palestinian ministry of the environments district manager, Atsam Kassem told the paper that the barrels contained sulfur and other dangerous chemicals."
