Police minister: Many Meron victims have yet to be identified

Public Security Minister Amir Ohana says many of the Meron stampede victims have yet to be identified.

“Unfortunately, many of the deceased have yet to be identified… and as a result, there are many families still unaware [of the fate of their relatives],” he says.

Ohana, whose office oversees the Israel Police, says officers are working to clear the roads around Mount Meron and enable those stranded at the pilgrimage site to head home.
