Israel Railways temporarily halts train service in parts of south due to fire

Israel Railways says it has temporarily shuttered train service between the Ashkelon and Netivot stations due to a fire that broke out near the southern town of Sderot.

The station at Sderot is also closed temporarily.

The national railway company doesn’t say what started the blaze near Sderot, which is near the Gaza Strip, but it comes as airborne incendiary attacks from the coastal enclave resume.
