Wildfires continue to burn up Israel forests
Jewish National Fund officials announced that Tuesday's fires
throughout the country consumed 30,000 trees, reported Reshet Bet
JNF Director Effi Shtentzler explained that the number of wildires
occurring on Tuesday was the largest amount since the Second Lebanon
War in 2006.
He added that JNF invests more than NIS 20 million every year in the
battle against wildfires.
Firefighters and JNF workers will remain at the scene of the fire near
