An uproar in Jordan..a strange red pool next to the Dead Sea

September 12, 2021 by archyde

During the past hours, Jordanian circles were preoccupied with the spread of pictures of a red pool in the Dead Sea area, which were widely circulated by social media pioneers, which necessitated the intervention of the Ministry of Irrigation to comment on the matter.

In a statement, the ministry confirmed that this red pool that appeared in the Dead Sea area is completely isolated from the sea.

Ministry spokesman Omar Salama said, on Sunday, that specialized teams from the Ministry of Water took samples to examine the pond, which contains red water, and sent them to laboratories for analysis.

He also made it clear that the results will be announced as soon as they are received.

It is worth noting that many publications carried pictures that were transmitted by pioneers of social networking sites in Jordan, in which they wondered about that red pool that appeared suddenly, as people noticed the water coming out of a different color.

Others reported that the water level in that area had risen above normal, until the Ministry of Irrigation confirmed that this pool of water is isolated from the sea and will never affect the Dead Sea water.
