Wildfires in 4 Middle Eastern countries force hundreds to flee

Wildfires spreading across Syria, Turkey, Israel and Lebanon, triggered by a heatwave, have forced hundreds of people to flee their residences.

Homes were evacuated in the southern province of Hatay, Turkey as wildfire broke out near residential areas.

The Sarimazi neighbourhood, on the border of Iskenderun and Belen districts, was evacuated too as homes and businesses were damaged according to local reports.

Smoke and a reddish haze hovered over the northwestern Syrian coastal town of Om al-Toyour, in the Latakia Governorate, as a series of wildfires spread through the area as local media reported that thousands of residents fled the fires.

The Latakia Fire Brigade reported fires in the governorate on Friday, blaming strong winds for their fast spread.

In Lebanon, authorities were battling fierce wildfires across the Mount Lebanon mountain range on Oct. 8 and 9. The Lebanese Civil Defense said rising temperatures and high wind speeds were contributing to the spread of the fires.

    FORCE PEOPLE TO BELIEVE IN CLIMATE CHANGE BY STARTING FIRES WITH DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS = FORCED SUNDAY LAW COMING PEOPLE= CASHLESS SYSTEM TOO = BE A NOAH
    BE A NOAH
    BE PREPARED FOR A YEAR
    BUT TRUST JESUS
    ,,,Genesis 6:21,,,
    21 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.
    ,,,Matthew 24:37-39,,,
    37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
    38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
    39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
    ,,,Luke 17:26-27,,,
    Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man. They were eating and drinking and marrying and being given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.
    ,,,Hebrews 11:7,,,
    By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith

    IT TOOK A YEAR BEFORE NOAH COULD LEAVE THE ARK
    ,,,Genesis 7: 6, 11
    6 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.
    11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
    ,,Genesis 8:13-14,,,
    And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
    14 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried.

    Our biggest human issues are not confined by geographical boundaries. And they can only be addressed through consultation, collaboration, and cooperation.

    God is not with abrahamic religion. Full of hate, curses and more hate. Christians as well.
