For what was said to be the first time ever, a killer whale was spotted off Israel’s Mediterranean coast on Friday.

A fisherman initially saw the mammal from Shavei Zion beach in northern Israel and alerted the Nature and Parks Authority.

The killer whale was later observed in 15-meter deep water around 1.4 miles from the ancient port city of Acre.
