Residents of the Jewish town of Neve Tzef in the West Bank was ordered evacuated Friday evening by local authorities concerned about wild fires approaching the community.

Israel has been ravaged by numerous fires spread throughout the country over the last four days, forcing tens of thousands to flee their homes for safety.

Authorities believe that the blazes were the result of arson set by Arab perpetrators, with at least four suspects being detained and questioned by Israel security services.
