The first oil exploration dig in the Galilee region is to begin shortly, according to the Hanal government-owned oil exploration investment company. It will also be the first use of research data worked out by the late Prof. Raphael Freund, former head of the Hebrew University geology department who died a year ago. Trial digs are to be started in Western Galilee not far from Nahariya just south of the Lebanese border.
