Amazing video of jellyfish invading Lebanon’s beaches!!

A video spread on social media of jellyfish invading Jounieh Beach. One of the people filmed the scene, while he was practicing his hobby of skydiving.

Specialists in the field of marine creatures called on citizens and beachgoers to be careful, because touching the jellyfish to the skin can harm humans and cause burns.

It is known that at the beginning of July every year, swarms of jellyfish invade the Mediterranean waters coming from the Indian Ocean through the Strait of Gibraltar, and from the Red Sea through the Suez Canal, taking advantage of the high water temperature that suits their natural life cycle.

Some types of this organism are highly toxic so that they can eliminate human life in minutes, which are recorded off the coast of Australia and some areas of the world, and many of them affect the human skin with allergies.

According to Wikipedia, stingers usually reproduce by laying eggs, where they lay their eggs that swim in water until they reach a fixed location that helps them stick. It grows until it becomes a polyp.

It continues to grow until it hatches in groups, separates from the fixed ground and moves, completing its life stages, floating in the water and then dying.
