Prime Minister Binyamin Netayahu on Friday morning thanked his international counterparts for help in attempts to controlling a huge brush-fire in the Carmel which had already claimed 41 lives. 


He mentioned Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou, who he called a “real friend,” as well as Cypriot President Dimitris Christofias, British Prime Minister David Cameron, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, Russian Prime Minister Vladmir Putin, and most notably Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. In what Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said was a German initiative, Turkey agreed to send two fire-fighting planes.


The prime minister also praised Israeli rescue workers, the IDF, the Israel Prisons Service, and hospitals around the country.
