حرائق الغابات تنتشر في دول البحر الأبيض المتوسط

August 12, 2021 - من تركيا إلى تونس، شهدت بلدان البحر الأبيض المتوسط بعض أعلى درجات الحرارة منذ عقود، حيث حذرت لجنة المناخ التابعة للأمم المتحدة هذا الأسبوع من عقود من الاضطرابات المناخية.

A heatwave fed by hot air from North Africa has engulfed large parts of the Mediterranean region in recent days, contributing to massive wildfires and killing dozens of people in Italy, Turkey and Algeria.

In Greece, huge wildfires have ravaged forests for a week, destroying homes and forcing evacuations.

Sicily recorded Wednesday what may be a new European temperature record – 48.8 degrees Celsius – though weather experts cautioned that the measurement still must be confirmed.
