 The operation to control the blazes in the North is a massive effort, said Ashkenazi. He continued, "We are all firefighters [now]."  The army chief also stated that he believed that the fire would be put out in one to two days, but qualified his statement by adding progress on controlling the fire depended greatly on the weather in the upcoming days.
