Wildfire encroaches on Hadassah Hospital

Changing winds have started blowing the fire outside Jerusalem toward Hadassah Hospital in Ein Kerem. There is no immediate threat to the medical center, and no evacuation order has been given, Israel Radio reports. Cars parked on the lower slopes, in the direction of the fire, are advised to be moved.

Because of the high levels of airborne pollution, residents of towns and Jerusalem neighborhoods near the fire are advised to close windows and remain indoors.
