Video: Ambassadors from more than 20 countries plant trees in Carmel forest

The ambassadors to Israel from more than 20 countries that helped fight the Carmel forest fire came together near the Carmel Forest Hotel to plant trees and revitalize the forest on Monday.

Let's go to the videotape.

Here's more:
The diplomats included ambassadors from the US, Russia, France, Germany, Greece, Spain, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Japan, Jordan, Korea, the Netherlands, Norway, Romania and the Ukraine, as well as a representative of the Palestinian Authority.

The seedling-planting ceremony was held near the Ye'arot HaCarmel hotel, a location that the JNF's firefighting force played an important role in saving from the fire.


The Director of the Greek Foreign Ministry, Konstantin Papadopoulos, spoke on behalf of the ambassadors. "We will always stand beside you," he said. "One never knows when we might need help. This is an act of human solidarity, and in Greece we remember how Israel did not hesitate to aid us three years ago in putting out the huge fire that raged in our country."
Let's hope that a fire like this does not happen again.
