Israel's shortage of fire-fighting planes will be brought up at an emergency Friday morning cabinet meeting, according to Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman. 

Speaking to Israel Radio as a fire which has already claimed 41 lives raged in the Carmel, the foreign minister said Israel was "dealing with a disaster like we have never known before." He charged that though the shortage was known, "nothing here ever happens until disaster strikes."
