Netanyahu visits firefighting command center as blazes continue

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrives at the Fire and Rescue Service Coastal District’s forward command center, where he is briefed by Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan and Police Commissioner Roni Alsheich on ongoing efforts to beat back multiple massive fires across the country.

Conflagrations over the past two days have led to multiple injuries and evacuations amid unusually dry and windy weather.
