Wildfires – Lebanon

A “gigantic” fire engulfed forest areas in north Lebanon on Wednesday and is threatening the lives of villagers, the Red Cross said. The bushfire spread across the hills of Qoubaiyat, burning land including olive groves and oak trees in the village of Beino.

Summer bushfires are common in Lebanon, endangering people, communities, and the ecology of one the Arab world’s most verdant countries.
