Environmental Protection Ministry officials stressed that the container posed no threat to people in the area.
Emergency teams identified radioactive material emanating from a shipping container at the Ashdod Port on Monday.
As a precaution, port workers were evacuated, enabling Fire and Rescue Services and hazardous materials teams to perform checks to classify the material, a statement from Fire and Rescue Service’s southern district said.
The container arrived on a Chinese ship, Channel 2 reported.
Environmental Protection Ministry officials stressed that there was no threat to the area.
“At the instruction of the Environmental Protection Ministry, the container was transferred to an insulated area at the Ashdod Port,” a statement from the ministry said. “There is no risk to the public.”
The Ashdod Port likewise emphasized that although emergency teams activated hazardous materials procedures, the facility continued to function as normal.
A radioactive, Chinese cargo container shows up at the Ashdod Port without any apparent expectations from the Port Authority, and all we get from them is...
“There is no risk to the public.”
Are we supposed to be that stupid and trusting?! Seriously?!

Think about it.
Either the Ashdod Port receives radioactive materials requiring storage or in an appropriately "insulated area."
The Port Authority does not really have such an "insulated area," at least not one to protect the public sufficiently from radioactivity.
What? They have an "insulated area" taking up space,...just in case?
Furthermore, just in case of what, exactly?? Medical equipment with minute amounts of radioactive substances, which break open during transport?
Possible, but doubtful, in my opinion.
Just ask these kids irradiated, and their parents told that it was an experimental treatment for ringworm.
