Seven firefighting airplanes and two more helicopters from the Ramat David airforce base were joining efforts to battle the Carmel fire on Friday, IAF chief Maj.-Gen. Ido Nehushtan stated.

Nehushtan said that the IAF was coordinating the aerial firefighting effort with aircraft brought to help from Greece, Turkey and Cyprus. The foreign aircraft were bringing water from the Mediterranean Sea to drop on the flames, the IAF chief noted.
