Additional fires break out in Be‘eri, Kissufim forests on Gaza border

A number of additional fires broke out Wednesday in the forests surrounding Israel‘s border with the Gaza Strip in the Eshkol Regional Council, KKL-JNF firefighters reported Monday afternoon.

One fire broke out in the Be‘eri forest, and four are raging in the Kissufim forest, where flames broke out earlier on Monday.

The flames are a result of incendiary balloons and kites launched into Israel from the coastal enclave.
