Minister: 3 feared missing following evacuation of Jerusalem-area hospital

Public Security Minister Omer Barlev says three people who were at the Eitanim psychiatric hospital near Jerusalem are feared missing following the hospital’s evacuation due to the massive forest fire.

“I hope it is a miscount,” Barlev tells reporters at a command center in Shoresh.

He says the battle against the blaze, which has forced the evacuation of thousands of people, will continue “all night and possibly tomorrow as well.”
