Egypt helped extinguish fire in Israel: MENA
Ahram Online , Sunday 27 Nov 2016

Egypt provided assistance to Israel in extinguishing a major fire that
broke out Tuesday and spread in several parts of the country, an Egyptian
government source told official state news agency MENA on Sunday.

The source said that Egyptian assistance in firefighting operations was to
“minimise the impact [of the fire] on people.”

There has been no official confirmation from Egyptian authorities that the
country had provided help in putting out the fire.

The blaze spread through much of Israel, starting in Neve Shalom, the Judean
Hills and Zichron Yaakov, a town just south of the major city of Haifa,
forcing thousands to evacuate their homes, according to Israeli media

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Friday that Egypt,
Jordan and the Palestinian Authority assisted in firefighting efforts.

Other countries that provided assistance include the US and Turkey.
