A commander of the Israeli firefighters carried out a briefing Saturday afternoon with the Home Front Command and a Russian detachment of high-ranking firefighter officials.

The Russian team is comprised of 24 personnel, including the deputy head of the Russian emergency situation branch. Two Russian planes were in the air in efforts to fight the Carmel fire.

The group met earlier with Deputy Defense Minister Mattan Vilnai.
