    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, DECEMBER 4 - An oil spill from a pipeline in southern Israel has caused ''one of the worst disasters in the history of our nation'', media quote the environment minister as saying. A civil defense chief said that a seven-kilometer river of oil that had leaked out of a tube breached during maintenance work was now heading for the desert nature reserve Evrona, 20 kilometer north of Eilat, the southernmost point of Israel.
