Al Qassam website- Ramallah- The international physicians for the prevention of nuclear war (IPPNW)-Palestine branch said that a recent study conducted by the Finnish association DHF in the Negev region, where the Dimona nuclear facility is located, showed that Negev air is contaminated almost during all days of the year, which poses serious health hazards.

During an environmental symposium held in Ramallah on Sunday, head of IPPNW Mahmoud Sa'adeh said that the Israeli government was able to convince the Jewish population living in the Negev that the toxic emissions reported in their areas and the resultant malignant diseases and infections rampant among them are caused by the livestock raised by the Palestinian Bedouin population living in the Negev.
  
Sa'adeh said that a research study conducted in 2007 had found out that the range of the area affected by radioactive waste and contamination extended to include other areas to the north of occupied Palestine such as Al-Khalil city.

He added that the study also showed that the levels of radiations exceeded three times the internationally permitted limit, noting that the contamination of soil and plants in Tulkarem and Qalqiliya areas, north of Palestine, was discovered during recent years.
