Palestine: Fire in Israel spreads, force evacuation in West Bank settlements
Settlements of Talmont and Dolev, Ramallah, West Bank 24/11/2016
A blaze in the Jerusalem corridor consumed part of a decades-old hilltop community, and northern Zichron Yaakov was on lockdown after some of its homes were destroyed by blazes on Tuesday.
Heavy winds have helped spread fires fueled by a two-month drought and gusts are expected to pick up further in the next two days.
The fire in the northern community of Zichron Yaakov, which broke out on Tuesday, flared anew on Wednesday morning, and residents of some neighborhoods were instructed to stay away from their homes.
