BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Two major fires are currently raging west of Jerusalem in the areas of Ein Kerem and Kibbutz Nataf, near Abu Ghosh.

Jerusalem police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said on Twitter that six planes and more than 20 fire fighter teams were working near Ein Karem area to contain the fire, which was still not under control.

A number of structures had also been evacuated, he added.

Three individuals were reported to have suffered light injuries as a result of suffocation from the fires.
