Forest fires erupt near Jerusalem

Forest fires erupted near the town of Abu Ghosh, adjacent to Jerusalem, on Wednesday, prompting the Israeli fire and rescue services to evacuate residents in the area.

The fire broke out in the hills northwest of the city, where local media reported that the fire started in Jabal Al-Rih before spreading to other areas.

The authorities used firefighting planes to put out the fires, which caused the closure of the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv road for a short time and stopped trains to Jerusalem.
