Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke with Interior Minister Eli Yishai Monday and asked him to consider other ways, other than an inquiry committee, to investigate the circumstances of the Carmel fires.

Yishai did not change his mind and demanded the establishing of a committee.

Netanyahu, who is not interested in setting up a committee, said at a press conference earlier on Monday that such a committee will not be helpful and that it is necessary to deal with the reality on the ground now and make repairs.
