Following a request from the Foreign Ministry, firefighting aircrafts and crews from Cyprus, Greece, Croatia and Italy are expected to arrive in Israel from noon to help extinguish fires in the Center of the country, which have been raging since yesterday, Arutz Sheva reported.

Ground teams from Cyprus have already arrived in Israel.This comes as the country is experiencing a severe heatwave, which has led to a number of massive brush fires near Jerusalem and Modi'in. Mevo Modi'in was destroyed during a fire that ravaged the area on Thursday.



Dozens of communities in the Center were also severely damaged in the blazes.
