Emergency services group says many at Mt. Meron unaware of tragedy’s extent

The spokesperson for the Zaka emergency services group says many people at Mt. Meron still do not understand the magnitude of the event there.

“I left the scene to bring a drink, and people were praying. They’re cut off. They don’t understand the size of the tragedy. They don’t understand there there are dozens dead, an incomprehensible amount,” says Motti Bokchin.

Some congregants are seen in live news feeds at Mt. Meron singing and dancing after the sunrise on Friday morning.

Widespread failures in cell phone service due to overload have hampered communication in the area.
