The fire in the Jerusalem mountains continues to rage (police skimmer photos)

About two months after the outbreak of the huge fire in the Jerusalem mountains, the largest in the country's history, the residents of the moshavim damaged by the fire are losing patience and demanding that the police publish the findings of the fire, which will allow them to contact the authorities for financial assistance.



The fire consumed, among other things, farms, wineries and wooded areas of inconceivable size.

The findings of the report of the fire and rescue investigation into Israel were handed over to the police a few days after it broke out in August.

According to the procedure, it is the police who can determine the circumstances of the fire based on the findings in their possession, but it is delayed in delivering the notice.



In a meeting with residents affected by the fire, which took place ahead of Rosh Hashanah, Jerusalem District Commander Doron Turgeman said, "We have been working on the investigation since the day of the incident itself and are making great efforts to reach those suspects, assuming it is a man-made incident. I also understand the significance of the results of the investigation for you. "

The chairman of the Ramat Raziel moshav committee, Baruch Peled, claims to explain in a conversation with Walla! About the significance of delaying the publication of the results of the investigation. The damages are there, and it is not resolved by itself, "says Peled." If it is defined as arson then there is the government appraiser who is supposed to pay for the damages. In the meantime,



we'm stuck. "But beyond that, there are a lot of trees that need to be cut down so that we do not have another fire. But the most significant thing is that everything that was burned and we do not have insurance, the state does not rehabilitate. For example, 100 dunams of burned olive grove. "Shekels, and this is not even the best system we need, but a compromise. We are currently hanging in the air."



The chairman of the Givat Ya'arim moshav committee, Nissim Ben Yehuda, is also frustrated by the situation:

Only the police will make a decision already.

I, as the residents' representative, would not give them more than a few days, the situation is unbearable.

There is not a day that I do not receive a phone call and inquiries about what is happening with it, who will help us.

I also do not understand the reason why the police are delaying the announcement, it is not fair.



"" What I suggested to the residents is to file lawsuits against the authorities, "says Ben Yehuda, "Because they did not create buffer zones. I, as the moshav committee, cannot help."

Damages estimated at millions of shekels.

According to Ben Yehuda, the damage caused to the moshav is estimated at NIS dictionaries. Among other things, he said, a house in Moshav was damaged by half a million shekels, the coop was damaged by 400,000 shekels, and more. Along with the economic problems, the chairman of the Moshav Givat Ya'arim committee testifies to the effect of the fire on the mental state of the residents.



"There are things we can fix and improve with money, but even that will not help deal with the trauma This one, "shares Ben Yehuda." The council funded an event for us with a singer, but there was a really poor attendance. I spoke to them and they told me that they were not in the mood to come and be at the event. "



The police said that "the investigation of the circumstances of the fire in the Jerusalem mountains is still being conducted by the police, in accordance with the opinion of the fire investigators of the fire brigade. "All the time and resources needed. We will continue to investigate the case thoroughly and professionally and carry out all the necessary actions and tests in order to arrive at an investigation of the truth."
