Father: 'Men in Uniform' Responsible in Carmel Disaster


Danny Dayan, who lost his son Shimon in the Carmel fire disaster, told a Knesset committee Tuesday that he believes the “executive level, those in uniform, is the responsible party for the bus disaster.” A bus of Prison Services officers was consumed by fire in the 2010 tragedy, killing several dozen people.

Dayan called to grant legal immunity to police and prison services officers “so that they will talk about the failures that led to the disaster.”
