Be'eri Forest was set ablaze and a major fire in the region of Kissufim in the north-west Negev broke out Friday due to Palestinian terror kites flown in from Gaza, KKL-JNF reported on Friday evening.
Fires were also reported near the Anzac monument honoring the Australian and New Zelandi soldiers killed in what is now Israel during World War One.

" events in recent weeks.
