Building Collapses in Tel Aviv Leaving Four Dead

Our thoughts and prayers are with Tel Aviv today, where four people were killed and dozens more were injured when a building in Tel Aviv, Israel, collapsed earlier this week.

The Times of Israel reports:

One fatality was identified as a 28-year-old Ukrainian national, another was a 34-year-old Palestinian from Bayt Rima in the northern West Bank. The identity of the other deceased victim has not been officially released.

Hundreds of reserve and conscripted soldiers from the IDF Home Front Command’s search and rescue units, along with members of the Israel Police, Fire Service and Magen David Adom ambulance service, have been operating on the scene since the four-story underground garage collapsed suddenly late Monday morning.

One of our adopted IDF battalions has joined the search and rescue efforts for individuals who remain trapped in the rubble.

Please join us in prayer for both the families of the victims and for continued search and rescue efforts!
