The area was immediately isolated and the southern shore of Aqaba governorate was evacuated, and specialists began dealing with the incident, while the Civil Defense transferred a number of injuries to the hospital, all of whom are under treatment, and combing operations are still ongoing in the water surrounding the ship.

What is the poisonous yellow gas that leaked in the port of Aqaba?

Chlorine gas is recognizable by its pungent and irritating odor, which is similar to cleaning "bleach", and the strong smell may provide enough warning to people of exposure.

Chlorine itself is not flammable, but it can react explosively or form explosive compounds with other chemicals such as turpentine and ammonia.
