This report is a little inaccurate because the process intended for use in the Bet Shemesh area is not fracking but a more experimental method called in-situ retorting. This involves heating up the ground for many months using giant subterranean electrodes. This has NEVER been done commercially and so there is no real knowledge of its dangesr and risks. The JNF are quite correct to reject its use.
