Israeli, Jordanian Firemen Cooperate in Fighting Blazes

Download PDF for this date

For the second time this week, Israeli and Jordanian firemen cooperated yesterday in extinguishing blazes in the Jerusalem no-man’s land.

Fire engines from both sides roared into the neutral area, and Israeli and Jordanian fire hoses poured on water to keep the fire from spreading.

In the first fire, last Monday, the Jordanians first attacked the fire and kept it from spreading into Israeli territory. Yesterday, it was the other way around.
