3 Children Ill from Pesticides in Petach Tikva


Residents of an apartment building in Petach Tikva complained of a strong stench of pesticides and felt ill. Three children were hospitalized in Bellison Hospital and released a short while later after falling slightly ill from the chemicals.

Police and officials from the Ministry of the Environment were summoned to the building. One of the apartments allegedly underwent an extermination process. Following a consultation, it was decided that there was no need to evacuate the building.
