HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Palestinian firefighters put out a blaze on an Israeli bus traveling south of Hebron on Saturday morning, civil defense teams said.
The civil defense said fire fighters rushed to the burning bus from nearby Dura and Dhahiriyya stations, and evacuated the Israeli passengers before extinguishing the fire.
The bus, passing by al-Fawwar camp, set alight when oil leaked from the lubrication system and exploded due to the engine temperature, a report by the civil defense department said.
