American Supertanker En Route To Israel To Help Battle Fires


An American supertanker is en route to Israel to assist in fighting fires burning across the country.

The Israel Foreign Ministry requested the tanker, a converted Boeing 747.

It will arrive no sooner than 28 hours, though every hour is crucial at this point.

About a dozen other planes should be arriving from overseas to help with the firefighting effort, including two aircraft from France.
