Lebanon Battels to Control Batramaz Forest Fires

Published June 8th, 2022 - 10:48 GMT

Lebanese rescue groups rushed, on Wednesday, to turn off a massive fire in the country's widest pine forest.

Authorities released a statement suggesting that the Batramaz forest fires could be deliberate, as the country braced for another summer of fires.

The Lebanese Army added its helicopters were contributing to the massive efforts to curb the spread of the fire which broke out last night in the forests of Batramaz, Dennieh.
