  • RT published this video item, entitled “2 dead & 160+ injured as bleachers collapse at ‘unfinished’ West Bank synagogue” – below is their description.

    Two people were killed and more than 160 injured when a grandstand collapsed in an Israeli synagogue.

    The seating had been erected at the synagogue in Givat Zeev, in the occupied West Bank, as part of celebrations for the Jewish Shavuot feast on Sunday.

    The two deaths were reported as a 40-year-old man and a 12-year-old boy. A 17-year-old boy, Shmulik Bornstein, has also been reported missing.

    Officials have claimed that the synagogue was unfinished and unfit for use.

    Deddi Simhi, head of the Israel Fire and Rescue service, told Israel’s Channel 12, ‘This building is not finished. It doesn’t even have a permit for occupancy, and therefore let alone holding events in it.’
