Hundreds of Fires Ravage Israel- Is this the new face of terror?

By Faye Higbee

Two hundred thirty fires are raging across Israel, as Greece and Croatia are sending tanker planes to assist in putting out the fires, with Cyprus, Italy and Russia to send planes tomorrow. Authorities are calling it possible terrorism, as many of the fires appear to be intentionally set.

Prime Minister Netanyahu requested the help from other nations. Four people have been detained in the investigation thus far.

Firefighters have been battling the blazes for 36 hours in whipping winds that may not die down for some time. Rain is not expected for another week. Hundreds of people have been evacuated, and at least 10 homes destroyed.

Magen David Adom paramedics have geared up for more as many have been treated for smoke inhalation. Two people so far have been injured.

“Due to weather conditions and fear of fires MDA teams have deployed reinforcements to risk centers around the country, and are prepared to respond to when needed.” Magen David Adom

After MDA issued that statement, fires broke out on the West Bank, Galilee, Nahariyah and the Jerusalem hills.

Is this the new face of terrorist activity in the Middle East?  Their nation has increased security around the country. Though at least a few of the fires were likely unintentional, many are considered arson.

Muslims on Twitter found this whole thing exceedingly funny.
