A 64-year-old Beersheba woman was in critical condition after she was struck by a car in the middle of a two-minute siren sounded throughout the country to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day on Thursday. The woman was trapped under the car that struck her while she was standing in silence for the siren, police believed.

Magen David Adom Paramedics removed the woman from under the car and evacuated her to Soroka University Medical Center in the city, where she was listed in critical condition.
