Firefighters in north battling blazes ignited by Hezbollah rockets

Six firefighting crews have been dispatched to try and quell a series of blazes sparked when rockets fired from Lebanon landed in uninhabited areas, setting dry brush alight.

The fires are mostly in northern Israel’s Hula Valley, including near Ayelet Hashahar, the Fire Service says.

“As of now the fire is not under control,” Fire Service Captain Gadi Azoulay says in a statement.
