A police officer from Cyprus, working to fight the fire in the Carmel, told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday that 80% of the blaze has been contained.

In addition, three helicopters from Switzerland prepared to land in the area on Sunday afternoon.

Earlier Sunday, the Israeli Police helicopter observation union reported that there were no longer any large fires in the Carmel, only small fires scattered throughout the area.
