Fire at the entrance to Nataf

Fire at the entrance to Nataf

A huge fire which broke out on Friday afternoon in the Jerusalem Hills is threatening the community of Nataf, whose residents were asked to evacuate their homes.

The forest fire broke out at around 3:00 p.m. (Israel time) and quickly began to spread to Nataf. 30 firefighting crews and 20 firefighting planes were dispatched to the area.

The fire damaged a restaurant and at least one home in Nataf. There were no reports of injuries.

As of 8:00 p.m. the fire was still not extinguished and the efforts will continue into the night, though it becomes harder to extinguish the flames after dark since the firefighting planes do not operate in the dark.

In addition to Nataf, two more fires were reported near the community of Mevo Horon, located near Latrun and Modi’in, and another near the town of Beit Meir which was evacuated overnight Thursday due to an earlier fire.

Meanwhile, security forces on Friday arrested 12 suspects in connection with the fires. One of the suspects, a youth from Rahat in southern Israel, was arrested for incitement, after he called on his Facebook page to “take care of the Zionists.”

In addition, police said that, at the present time, 11 additional suspects are being interrogated in connection to the arsons raging across the country – three in connection to the giant fires in Haifa.

The American Supertanker plane landed at the Ben Gurion Airport in Israel on Friday evening.

The plane will help in putting out the fires that are raging across the country. It is expected to be operational on Saturday.

The Supertanker, the largest aerial firefighting aircraft in the world, is based on the Boeing 747 and is capable of carrying up to 19,600 gallons of retardant or water.

The Boeing 747-400 Supertanker is considered the most advanced firefighting aircraft in the world. It became operational last spring, replacing the 747-100 Supertanker which the United States sent to help Israel fight the 2010 Carmel wildfires.

Unlike other firefighting aircraft, the Supertanker disperses water in a manner similar to falling rain over a wider area, rather than dumping the water over smaller areas. This approach is also safer for firefighters on the ground.

The Supertanker joins the international efforts to put out the fires in Israel. Russia, Cyprus, Greece, Turkey, and Italy have already sent firefighting planes. Israel also turned to France and Portugal for help Friday morning.

Firefighters continued overnight Thursday to fight the fires that are raging across Israel.

At around 2:00 a.m. a fire broke out between Beit Shemesh and Jerusalem, near the religious moshav (cooperative village) of Beit Meir.

Residents of Beit Meir, which is just off the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway, were evacuated from their homes, including 300 people at the guest house, most of them to the nearby town of Shoresh.

25 firefighting crews worked at the scene to extinguish the flames, and succeeded in doing so shortly before 5:30 a.m.

Reports said that several suspects fled the area as the fire began to spread. One suspect was arrested and police are searching for the others.

Earlier on Thursday night, the community of Har Halutz in the central Galilee was evacuated after a fire in the Karmiel area threatened homes in the community.

Six houses were damaged in the fire, which was extinguished shortly before 3:00 a.m. and residents were permitted to return to their homes.

Another forest fire erupted between Iksal and Nazareth Illit. Firefighters are working to extinguish the fire.

A fire also broke out in a wadi near the community of Dolev in the Binyamin region, and several residents were evacuated from their homes. The fire was contained shortly before 3:00 a.m. and residents were allowed to return to their homes.

Meanwhile, five homes were evacuated from the Arab town of Ka’abiye in northern Israel, due to a forest fire that broke out nearby.

There were no reports of injuries or damage, but the evacuation was a precautionary step.

The area which suffered the most damage was the city of Haifa, where 85,000 people in eight neighborhoods were forced to leave their homes.

More than 300 firefighters backed by IDF troops and the Home Front Command are continuing to work to put out the fire. All IDF leaves were cancelled.

Benny Zecharia, veteran firefighter, spoke to Israel Army radio from Haifa, stressing that although he has not slept since the fires began, what is impressive is the dedication of the firefighters and soldiers, some of whom came all the way from Eilat to help.

“This fire is different from the Carmel fire of several years ago where there were terrible fatalities and an entire bus full of people went up in flames, but the fire was in the Carmel forest. In Haifa, it is an urban fire, and our biggest job is making sure every home endangered is emptied of its residents. We go from door to door and check out the apartments. It is terribly sad to see people’s hard-earned homes go up in flames, but it is heartening to see the cooperation between the forces and how they care about each other and the people they are helping.”

Of some 200 fires recorded over the past three days in Israel, Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan said it was estimated that roughly one half were deliberately set by Arab arsonists.

Police have found flammable materials intentionally placed at sites where fires broke out and have so far arrested eight individuals believed to be responsible for some of the fires over the past three days.


About urielperez

His leadership and television interviews have gone trough out the world Uriel has done close to 500 interviews in Israel Jerusalem, and many more to come our main goal is to educate the world about Israel and its right to protect herself from any form of terrorism .Israel is facing many challenges and dangers, and has been for a very long time. There is, an unprecedented propaganda campaign initiated by the Arab League to demonize, to discredit and delegitimize the Jewish people and its state, in its own land!. In order to achieve their goals, the Arabs have for more than 30 years resorted to a deliberate misinformation campaign.This propaganda campaign by the Arab League - both in their own countries and for the last three decades exported to Europe and North America - has caused to Israel what would seem irreparable damage and indeed, it was the main culprit in the reawakening of dormant European anti-Semitism Israel has suffered many terror attacks from terrorist .Israel should not bow down to any pressure imposed by the USA the EU. the Quartet nor the UN The current Obama administration continues to work behind the scenes by using John Kerry and others to fulfill their hidden agenda as I call it. The Obama administration is trying to force Israel to give up more land for false peace as we have seen in the past .Judea and Samaria and possibly the Jordan Valley are at the negotiating table and if the so called Palestinians obtain Judea and Samaria and possibly the Jordan Valley, Givat Haroe'eh in the Samaria community of Eli, Ramat Gilad and Giv'at Assaf (also in Samaria), and Mitzpeh Lachish, near Nehogot, outside Hevron. they can easily rain down rockets towards any city within Israel and Israel will be left without defensible borders . We say no land for false peace as we have seen in the past. Barrack Hussein Obama has a hidden agenda against Israel. Israel will face many difficult days ahead See Psalms 83' as we have seen what happened with Gush Katif were almost 9,000 Jews were forced out of their own Jewish land due to US pressure , now Bet El Almuna and Migron and Judea and Samaria face the same consequence .More than 17,000 rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel over 11,000, just to Sderot by Islamist extremist who want the total destruction of my people Israel. Hamas terrorist who are supported by Iran and now Hamas has joined hands with Fatah.Iran Lebanon Hezbollah Syria want the total destruction of Israel and now Al Qaeda and ISIS who are operating in Syria Egypt and the Sinai Desert will do anything in their power to destroy my people Israel and all Jews. The Moslem/ Arabs in that area started calling themselves “Palestinians” nearly 40 years ago. “Palestinian” refers to people who live in Palestine: Arabs (“Arabic speaking peoples”), Bedouins, Druze, Christians, and Jews. No people or nation ever ruled as a sovereign national entity on this land there is no Palestinian language or culture in past history. Palestine, as a country does not presently exist. No Arab nation has their historical roots on the land and no one have cl...aim to this territory other than the Jews. The Jewish rule of this land extended over a period of over 2000 years. Israel became a nation in the land in 1312 BC. God gave them the land in a covenant (Deuteronomy 29:1-30:20) and they lived there See Quote from Quran', Death to the enemies of Allah Those that make war against Allah and His apostle and spread disorder in the land shall be slain or crucified or have their hands and feet cut off on alternate sides, or be banished from the land. They shall be held up to shame in this world and sternly punished in the hereafter: except those that repent before you reduce them. For you must know that Allah is forgiving and merciful.Al-Maidah The Table 5:33-34 This is what radical Islam say's about us Jews' "The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews." (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim). Judea and Samaria also faces many challenges in the days to come as Abbu Massen will try to pressure the entire world and US President Barrack Hussein Obama the EU and the Quartet into giving more land for false peace we saw what happened after the Oslo Accords were signed more terror against Israel . Abbu Massen the PA. leader approached the United Nations this past November 2012 and has ask them to declare them a recognized nation within Israel known borders.
