Since the wildfires started spreading throughout central and northern Israel last weekend, nations around the world have offered to assist in extinguishing the blaze—including Palestinians.

Russia, the United States, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Cyprus, and Croatia have all helped to battle over 1,500 fires in Haifa and the areas surrounding Jerusalem. The Israeli government has also accepted the help of four different Palestinian firefighting teams with eight fire trucks.

Arabs and Jews alike reportedly opened their homes to evacuating families.
