    In Israel, at least 44 people have been killed and around 150 others injured in a stampede at a religious gathering attended by tens of thousands. It happened at Mount Meron in the northern part of the country - where ultra-Orthodox Jews were holding an all-night prayer and dance celebration.
    Footage from social media shows the scene shortly before tragedy struck. A densely packed crowd dancing ecstatically at the annual Lag BaOmer celebration.
    Authorities believe overcrowding is likely to blame for the fatalities and injuries. Rescue workers say many of the dead were either trampled to death or suffocated.
    It was the first large-scale religious gathering to be held legally since Israel lifted most coronavirus restrictions. But despite Israel's successful handling of the pandemic, health authorities had warned against holding a gathering of this size. The Lag BaOmer religious festival is particularly popular with Israel's ultra-Orthodox community. Followers gather at the grave site of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai at Mount Meron in northern Israel in a celebration that marks the anniversary of the death of the Talmudic sage. In a night-long vigil thousands of Jews will light large bonfires and visit the final resting place of Bar Yochai, who is revered as one of Judaism's great sages.
    Israeli police report nearly 100,000 people attended the gathering, which they say is four to five times as many as should have been in a location like this.

        It’s crazy how people instantly look after what happened to them, but then people don’t notice what they do to Palestine every day.

      Man this reminds me a lot about Woodstock 99 and big day out 2001 where a girl named Jessica was trampled to death during a song. My prayers go out to all the victims.

    23. Fester Alcock

      omgoodness. the fever is outrageous among the fanatical, don't you think? young people died here. doesn't a faith, like a person, demonstrate their true nature by deeds? what justification is there for such ambivalence & contempt for your brothers? eye saw the deeds of beings without a god or any love in their hearts. why have we made space for this fanaticism that values words & paper above life??? the world watches.

      1. Fester Alcock

        @seeni gzty I am sorry too. I am sorry that the mental & philosophical strength of mankind is diminishing.

      There's nothing wrong in attending Mass gatherings as long as there are divine led intervantion by the Almighty God of heaven and Earth .Any mas gathering which involves alcohol and over excited truly nothing good will come out of such invents the Almighty God has warmed HIS followers in HIS holy scriptures about anyone who takes strong wine the end result it's unGODLY
