Two suspects apprehended on suspicion of starting fire in the North

The Jerusalem Post is now reporting that two suspects were apprehended by police after being seen hurling Molotov cocktails in a forest on a Carmel mountain hilltop. There was a pursuit and the suspects were apprehended. Police suspect that the two may have also been behind the blazes at Tzur Shalom (near Kiryat Bialik north of Haifa) and Tivon.

The suspects are residents of Daliat al-Carmel, aged 35, police say.

By early Friday afternoon, fire had spread to new areas in the Carmel despite the efforts of firefighters who were aided by the first foreign firefighting aircraft which arrived to help control the blaze.

Firefighters were battling flames on several fronts, including Na’aman Junction, Chai Bar, the entrance to the village of Usfiya, and the area between Usfiya and Dalia.
