Head of PA Civil Defense: PA will assist putting out fires in Israel, as part of “humanitarian message”

Headline: "The State of Palestine provided assistance in putting out the fires that are raging in Israel"
"Secretary-General of the [PA] Civil Defense Yusuf Nassar announced that the State of Palestine will provide assistance in putting out the fires that are raging in Israel (i.e., a wave of suspected Palestinian arson attacks in November 2016).
Nassar clarified in a short statement to [the official PA news agency] WAFA that the Palestinian assistance will include sending teams and fire trucks that will join the international teams acting in this area… Nassar emphasized that this comes as Nassar emphasized that this comes as part of the [PA] Civil Defense Forces’ humanitarian message, and that this is not the first time that they are providing assistance to different states, as happened in the earthquake in Haiti in 2010, and in the fire in the Carmel (i.e., in northern Israel) in 2011 (sic., 2010).”
