Greece sends planes to fight Israel fire

Dec. 2, 2010 10:06 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 3, 2010 1:41 P.M.)
ATHENS (AFP) -- Greece said it will send four Canadair fire fighting planes to help Israel bring a deadly forest fire under control near Haifa, the foreign ministry said Thursday.

The planes were to take off late Thursday from a military airport near Athens and were due to reach Haifa at dawn on Friday, after refueling in Rhodes, Greece's firefighting services said.

The foreign ministry said the backup was ordered by Prime Minister Georges Papandreou after a telephone request from his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu.
