Yesh Atid, Yamina coalition deal sanctions state inquiry into Meron disaster

The coalition agreement signed between Yesh Atid and Yemina on Friday sanctions the forming of a state commission of inquiry to examine the events that led to the disaster on Mount Meron in late April.

Forty-five people, mostly ultra-Orthodox men, were killed in a stampede during the Lag BaOmer festival at the gravesite of a second-century sage in the worst civilian disaster in Israeli history.
