Social media users have shared several photos of an isolated pond near the Dead Sea in the Biblical region of Moab (Jordan) that was recently stained red for a cause that is still unknown.

 

Upon hearing the news, the Jordanian Ministry of Water and Irrigation sent a team of specialists last Saturday to take samples and determine the causes of the change, reports The Jerusalem Post. The results of the analyzes are expected to be released in the coming days.

 

The color of the pond can be associated with some stories in the Bible, in particular, with the conversion of water into blood, one of the so-called 10 plagues of Egypt. However, specialists believe that the color change may be caused by algae, iron oxide or the discharge of chemicals by humans.
