More than 80,000 people from the northern city of Haifa were evacuated from their homes Thursday, as firefighters battle massive blazes that have gripped the country over the past three days.

A number of countries, including Russia and Turkey, sent firefighting planes to assist Israel in tackling the fires, which officials said may have been started intentionally.

Israel's internal security agencies are looking into the causes of the blazes, which started on Monday night and have broken out in several other places around the country.
