Israelis living in the vicinity of Haifa shared these photos. They say a large fire broke out on a gas field platform. The blaze came in the wake of a Palestinian missile strike in response to Israeli aggression. However, it is not clear whether any missiles hit there.

Israeli authorities say the incident was caused by a technical fault and no one was injured.

Two weeks ago, a massive fire broke out at an oil refinery in Haifar, Israel, causing extensive damage. At that time, the oil supply had to be cut off due to the fire.
