Two fires have broken out near the southern city of Kiryat Gat on Friday morning, Israel Police have reported.

Trains to and from the city have been cancelled, and road access along Route 6 to the north of Kiryat Gat is being regulated according to the changing conditions on the ground by police officers.

The fires represent the furthest south the epidemic has reached so far, with Tuesday to Thursday's fires occurring exclusively in the North and Center of the country.
