Worshippers Complain of Crowdedness at Meron


Worshippers who took part on Sunday in the Lag Ba'omer celebrations on Mount Meron had some criticism for police.

The worshippers told Arutz Sheva that buses which were supposed to take them to the celebration did not arrive on time and that they were overcrowded. One said that police mounted on horsemen galloped toward worshippers and that “pregnant women and children were screaming for help.”

Police would not comment.
