Identification of Meron victims to continue after Shabbat

The identification process of the 45 people who were killed during the Lag Ba’Omer celebrations in Meron was stopped on Friday afternoon by order of the Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi, Rabbi David Lau, due to the start of Shabbat.

Almost all of the victims have already been identified by the families, but many of them could not be brought for burial due to the start of Shabbat.

(Arutz Sheva’s North American desk is keeping you updated until the start of Shabbat in New York. The time posted automatically on all Arutz Sheva articles, however, is Israeli time.)
