Israel forest fire

Location: Israel
December 3, 2010

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, centre, right,  shakes hands with the Greek ambassador to Israel, Kyriakos Loukakis, at the Israeli airforce base in Ramat David, northern Israel, where a Greek firefighters delegation landed earlier, on Friday, Dec. 3, 2010.  European aircraft dumped tons of water over flames shooting from tall trees Friday in northern Israel as firefighters struggled for a second day to contain the country’s worst-ever forest fire, which has killed 41 people and displaced thousands. More aid was on its way from the United States, Russia, Egypt, Cyprus, Jordan, Spain, Azerbaijan, Romania and Turkey _ which put aside tensions over Israel’s deadly raid on a Turkish Gaza-bound flotilla in May to lend a hand.
