The fires in Israel are being fanned by strong winds in the north of the city. It has threatened the homes near Jerusalem and in the West Bank.
Over 80,000 people have been reportedly told to evacuate their homes as the city of Haifa in Israel was set ablaze on Thursday as the wildfire raged into the country.
PM Benjamin was quoted in a newspaper saying, “Every fire that was the result of arson or incitement to arson is a terror in every way and we’ll treat it as such…Anyone who tries to burn parts of the state of Israel will be severely punished.”
Police Chief Roni Alsheich said, “ if the fire has been started deliberately it was safe to assume, It is politically motivated.”
#Israel_on_fire began trending on social media, with most tweets expressing pleasure over the outbreak.
