Huge Fire in Southwestern IDF Training Area

| |

A blaze described as “huge” in scale has been burning in IDF training grounds at Lachish, near the communities of Amatzia and Shekef. Lachish is an area of south-western Israel, between the Judean mountains and Ashkelon.

There is no intention, at this point, of evacuating the residents of the communities from their homes, because the fire has not come near residential areas.

Large numbers of firefighters have been alerted. Fire crews from Be’er Sheva, Rehovot, Ashkelon and Ashdod are on hand, as are large IDF and Jewish National Fund water tankers.
