The Palestinian firetrucks sent to help Israel fight the blaze in the Carmel are more advanced than Israel's, Channel 10 News reported on Sunday.

The modern firetrucks were reportedly a gift from the European Union, which contributed millions of dollars to establish a Palestinian firefighting force.

"We hope that we will have a major role in fighting the fire and in the humanitarian effort on Mount Carmel," a Palestinian firefighter told Channel 10. "It's, like, peace."
