Arava Desert to become an Aircraft Graveyard

Alexis Levin

In the south of Israel, the Arava desert faces a grim future. Despite resistance from environmental organizations, including SPNI, plans for the construction of an airplane depot in the area have been approved. The new depot will further pollute the desert that has already been damaged by the adjacent Ovda airport. Unfortunately the failure to halt these development plans will lead to the damage of a unique and fragile desert ecosystem.
