The United States Agency for International Development completed its forest fire assistance to Israel.

USAID wrapped up operations in Israel on Dec. 10, a statement released Monday said.

The United States, which mobilized assistance within hours of the outbreak of the devastating fires on Dec. 2, delivered $1.65 million in assistance, USAID said, most of it in fire retardant.

The fires in the Carmel Forest in Israel’s North killed 43 people.
