Cabinet to mull implementation of Meron findings within 30 days — Netanyahu’s office

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office says the government cabinet will consider a proposal to implement recommendations of a state commission of inquiry into the April 2021 crush at the Mount Meron pilgrimage site in which 45 people were killed.

Netanyahu orders Cabinet Secretary Yossi Fuchs to present ministers with a proposal within 30 days.

The report, released yesterday, found Netanyahu personally responsible, but did not recommend sanctions against him. It did however call for Knesset Speaker Amir Ohana to be banned in the future from the public security minister role he held at the time of the disaster, and recommends other officials, including police chief Kobi Shabtai, be removed.
