Morocco’s liaison office in Israel issues a statement expressing its condolences over the tragedy at Mount Meron, where 45 people were crushed to death in a stampede during Lag B’Omer festivities there.
The diplomatic mission resumed operations earlier this year after the US-brokered agreement between Israel and Morocco to reestablish diplomatic ties.
We learned with deep sadness the very unfortunate tragedy that resulted in the loss of lives during celebrations of Lag Baomer at Mount Meron.
Our sincere condolences and sympathy to the families of the victim.
We wish the injured prompt recovery.
With our deepest sympathy
