Haifa is burning and the mountains around Jerusalem are on fire too. Hundreds of people are injured and thousands are evacuating their homes.

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece and the all the Greek Jewry express their full support to the residents of Israel who were injured or were hit by the fires. We wish for the immediate restoration of the damages.

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece congratulates the Greek Government on the immediate positive response to the request of the Israeli Prime Minister to Greece for assistance in order to put out the devastating fires widespread in Israel.  

We wish all the Greek pilots, the firefighters and the technicians of the Greek delegation good luck to their mission. We highly appreciate the courage and solidarity they demonstrate in dealing with this disaster and wish them to thrive always in strength and health.   

This tragic situation proves that the cooperation between Greece and Israel is not only based on common interests but also on strong bonds of friendship between the two peoples.
