As the a special cabinet meeting Sunday in Tirat Carmel opened, the Carmel fire was still burning in the area around the town where the meeting was taking place.

Opening the meeting, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that he wants to eliminate bureaucracy and find quick solutions, finding alternative processes in order to rehabilitate the homes, neighborhoods, towns and businesses that have been damaged in the Carmel fire over the weekend.

The prime minister reiterated his earlier statement that asking for aid from other countries during a natural disaster is nothing to be ashamed of. He noted that during recent major fires in California, US and Russia, those countries also sought aid from foreign nations, and weren't embarrassed to do so.
