A day later and the Jerusalem forest that was ablaze in flames is still smoldering in places. Thankfully no one was injured. Nearly 100 firefighters from Jerusalem and central Israel fought the fire and were able to stop it before it reached the line of homes. Almost 200 acres of forest was destroyed – that’s a lot of trees. All 13 of Israel’s firefighting planes were deployed to extinguish the flames from the air, flying more than 58 sorties. Support Israel’s Fire & Rescue Services. With your donation they will be better equipped to handle the next emergency.
