A fire broke out on Tuesday morning near the Ko’akh junction on Road 90, just south of Kiryat Shmona.

The fire was probably caused by flares that the IDF shot overnight, KAN noted, after receiving an indication that there had been an infiltration from Lebanon.The fire has so far damaged electricity lines leading to electricity shortages in Kiryat Shmona and surrounding towns.Highway 90 has been blocked off from Mahanyaim junction to the north, while route 899 has been blocked off from Yesha junction to the south.

At 4:15 PM, Israeli media announced that Highway 90 opened up for traffic.Firefighters prepare to battle flames just north of the Kinneret, July 27th, 2021.
