Firefighters were set to intensify their protests Monday over a lack of funds, and only tend to emergencies. The move means firefighters will neither secure the Red Sea Jazz Festival, which begins Monday night, nor the evening's soccer match at Teddy Stadium between Betar Jerusalem and Hapoel Tel Aviv, which Jerusalem police say is now in jeopardy. If no agreement is reached between the fire brigade and the government, firefighters will also be absent from Maccabi Haifa's crucial midweek Champions League playoff second leg against Austrian side Salzburg.
