  • If it was that easy to burn out Israel, I'm surprised they didnt think of it before. Why lob single shot rockets into the place if you can just set fire to a forest. I didnt even know they HAD a forest there. I thought it was more or less arid scrub brush land.

    • israel has allot of forests, most of them located up north or in jerusalem mountains region.

      part of the forests allways was been there, part of them were planted since israel creation.

      that is also why almost each year there are forest/nature areas fires here, specially during the summer.
      the current summer was very harsh and saw allot of big fires, not just this one.
      but this one is defently the biggest which ever took place in israel.
      so far it burned 5 millions trees.

      what you th More..

      well, it is quite easy and it did heppened several times before (arsons by arabs).

      20 yrs ago, in 1989, there was also a very large fire in the same area like now, which was done by arab arsonists.

    • israel has similiar forest type as lebanon,cyprus,turkey and greece. (pines and oaks are the main trees).

      all of those countries has also similiar climate (medditerian).
      greece had also huge forest fires 1-2 years ago.

    • yes, what you see is usually from the west bank, which indeed has hills and mountains with almost no plants or trees at all. in winter it gets green but all summer it is dry and lush.

  • yesterday i was there for a short time- down the mountain. lots of police&fire figthers units, tv crews, water planes from defferent countries are up in endless circles in the sky, and huge smoke all over the sky.

    i took a video there and some photos and might upload it here.


    the public outrage as a resolt of the autorities failure to be ready for such a scenario might mark the end of Nethanyahoo goverment.

    • End of the Netanyahu government???
      WHere did you make that crap up from?
      Typical leftists blaming the right for their own errors.
      After the last Lebanon war under the Olmert government, it was very apparent that we didnt have the equipment or resources to put out the fires caused by the missiles.
      If anyone is to blame, its the past Olmert government.

      And all you were doing by going down there Aydeo, was helping to bottle up the traffic with the other stupid sightseers, and causing delays for fi More..

    • Arab arson is to blame.
      A drone already caught footage of 2 people starting a fire near that area.
