Firefighters battle blazes near Jerusalem, Tel Aviv

The unseasonably warm weather continues to spark wildfires.

Four firefighting squads are deployed near the Kfar Adumim settlement northeast of Jerusalem battling a brush fire on a hillside between the village and the nearby settlement of Nofei Prat.

A second brush fire is raging near the Tel Aviv suburb of Givatayim. The fire was stopped by three firefighting teams as it inched close to residential buildings in the Givatayim neighborhood of Givat Kozlovsky.

Firefighters have faced dozens of blazes as fields dried out over the course of an unusually dry and hot summer.
