At least eight people were killed on Tuesday and over 25 people injured, including one in a critical condition, in a major traffic accident at the Lehavim junction in the south of Israel.

Initial reports suggested a truck carrying a tractor collided with a bus on Highway 31 just after 2 p.m.

The victims were all Bedouin women …

The passengers on the bus were mostly from the area around Rahat, a large Bedouin city the Negev region.

Please pray for the loved ones of those who perished, as well as the recovery of those injured in the accident.
