A residential apartment building in Holon collapsed on Sunday afternoon, a day after 36 families were evacuated from the building.

Israel Fire and Rescue Services evacuated the residents of the building on Shabbos morning after they were called to the site due to the sound of a blast in the building.

The rescue crew discovered that significant cracks had formed in the building and some residents were trapped in their apartments as they couldn’t open their front doors due to a shift in the building’s shape.

Rescue workers evacuated the residents and the police closed off the street next to the building. Residents were told they could not return to the building as it was at risk of collapse, a decision supported by municipality engineers who carried out an inspection of the building. However, no one anticipated that the building would collapse literally the next day, with almost all of the residents’ possessions still in it.

Following the collapse on Sunday, police and rescue workers carried out a safety assessment of the area and engineers from the Holon Municipality inspected the buildings adjacent to the collapsed building to assess how the collapse affected their stability.

The area around the building has been closed to the public.

  1. Now we comprehend why the רבונו של עולם caused that tragic in Surfside, otherwise the engineers in חולון would never have had the foresight to evacuate this bldg in חולון ahead of their collapse, or/& the residents would have complained rather than comply, but following Surfside, it was a done deal for them to evacuate in a timely fashion.

  2. Another miracle happened here.
    If you look at the videos, you will notice that many people were outside near the building right before the collapse. No one got injured. If that isn’t a miracle, I don’t know what is.
