‘Fire kite‘ from Gaza sets Negev forest ablaze for second time in two days

Two teams of KKL-JNF firefighters are in the process extinguishing a forest fire in the Kissufim forest in the Negev. The blaze was started by an incendiary kite flown over the Gaza border on Saturday.

As of 4:00 p.m. on Saturday the fire was raging in five different areas of the forest.

An additional fire in the same region broke out Friday evening.
