Dozens of fire trucks from the Israeli Fire and Rescue Services on Sunday morning left in a convoy from the Sha'ar HaGai interchange between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and were driving slowly toward the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem. The convoy is part of a six week protest by the fire service over a 30 percent cut in their budget. The protest is part of nationwide strike by the Union of Local Authorities, that includes schoolteachers and garbage workers. Traffic was slow on Route 1 between Latrun and Shoresh.
