Over the past few days, fires have been raging across the country, due to both natural causes – the dry, windy weather conditions – but also due to arson.
At the time of writing, Haifa is suffering from 5 major fires inside the city, causing massive damage and the evacuation of 60,000 residents. Haifa is Israel’s third largest city.
Fires have been recorded across the country, with many being reported as cases of arson.
Meanwhile, across the Arab world, there have been celebrations of the fires. You can read more about them here.
We wish all the affected residents well and hope the fires are extinguished as soon as possible, with anyone who began the fires on purpose brought to justice.
