"The British Government has been saddened by the Carmel Forest fire in northern Israel which has claimed so many lives," British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Friday, according to a statement released.

Hague said "on behalf of the whole Government I send my condolences to those who have lost family members. Our thoughts are with the thousands who have had to leave their homes due to the blaze."

"This tragedy is all the more sad as it comes as the Jewish community around the world celebrates Hanukka, a time of hope and joy," the British foreign secretary said.
