Jellyfish invade Israeli shores

Millions of giant jellyfish have been washing up on Israeli beaches, posing a threat to power plants.

    Israelis have been dealing with a seaborne invasion of sorts this summer.

    Thousands of giant jellyfish, called warty comb jelly, have been washing up on their beaches, causing discomfort to beach-goers.

    The jellyfish themselves pose no danger to humans. But all those eggs in the water can leave bathers feeling a mild sting.

    As Al Jazeera's Tom Ackerman reports from Netanya, Israel, they are causing even bigger problems for the country's biggest power station.
