All southbound traffic on route 6 starting at the Nachshonim interchange due to the fires in the area. Route 444 is also closed in both directions due to the fires.

 

Additionally, 14 firefighting teams and two firefighting planes are working to put out a fire near Givat Koach Junction. Four additional teams are working to put out another fire near Rosh HaAyin.

 

The fires are reportedly being caused by the hot weather and abnormally dry conditions. There have been 70 instances where firefighters were called to put out brush fires since Friday morning.
