Massive wildfires continue to rage across central and northern Israel, damaging hundreds of homes and forcing tens of thousands of people to evacuate.
And the country's leaders say arsonists are to blame.
"We strongly believe that the fires could have been started by individuals who fled the scenes. There are a number of reports that we've received," Israeli Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld told Al Jazeera.
