Fire chief: Blaze not moving in direction of Hadassah Hospital

Fire and Rescue Services chief Didi Simchi tells Channel 13 news that Jerusalen’s Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem will certainly not need evacuating tonight.

“Tonight, [the fire] will not get near [to Hadassah hospital], that I can promise you. We’ve deployed large forces… To my relief, the fire is not moving in that direction. And if it does move in that direction, the firefighters… will protect Hadassah Hospital,” he says.
