Moshav Nataf in the Jerusalem Hills was evacuated Friday for the second time in four days as a huge new wildfire spread through the wooded area around Kibbutz Maaleh Hamisha. Thirty firefighting teams are battling the blaze backed by 20 planes. This fire was caused by flaming bottle bombs lobbed by Palestinians from a neighboring village into the dry, windblown forest.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
