May be an arid country like Israel should not plant dense forests but have the forests separated by "ditches". Also people should be stopped from having barbecues in these forests. They should even have a strict ban on smoking there. We pray for those killed, and saddened by the loss of the trees, the plants, and birds and animals! Hope the firefighters are safe and sucessful. Also happy to see that the Turks are helping out! We share this fragile planet and should help one another!
