Israel might have been able to prevent Carmel fire, reports show – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News.

Click onto the link for the article which appears in this morning’s “Ha’aretz”; Ilan Lior reports:
It was well-known long before last week that the firefighting service in Israel had serious deficiencies. Nonetheless a succession of government agencies, prime ministers and ministers of the interior and of finance failed to deal with the situation. A review of state comptroller reports, recommendations from professional investigative committees, deliberations by Knesset committees and correspondence among agencies all testify to the fact everyone foresaw such a catastrophe, but very little was done to head it off.
