Israel in flames

Israel in flames

An Islamist group has claimed responsibility for the fires, although it has not officially been confirmed. It would be an easy tactic for Islamists to use.

Firefighters were winning the battle to douse a blaze that spread across Haifa on Friday but more than a dozen other fires continued to burn elsewhere for the fourth day in a row.

Some of more than 60,000 evacuated people were beginning to return to their charred homes to assess the damage as police and firefighting units remained alert for flare-ups due to the dry, windy weather.

No deaths or serious injuries have been reported but dozens of people were hospitalised for smoke inhalation and hundreds of homes have been damaged.

The Palestinian Authority sent firefighters to help operations, as several countries including Russia and the US deployed planes and equipment and military reservists were sent out.

Some arsonists were filmed starting the fires. No word on whether they were Jihadists or not.

No word on whether they are jihadists? Probably little to no chance of that being a factor, huh?

Unclear. A lot of the Palestinians are pan-Arab nationalists and not Jihadists. However, the tactic of setting fire to places is a solid tactic to use.
