Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyhu conveyed the Cabinet's condolences Sunday to the Bernstein family, which suffered a terrible tragedy in the railroad accident near Kiryat Gat.

"Aryeh, Rivka, their four children – Malka, 21, who was pregnant; Yohanan, 16; Chaya, 14 and Mordechai Aharon, 9 – and Malka's one-year-old son, also named Mordechai Aharon, perished in this accident, may their memories be blessed," Netanyahu said.

Netanyahu stated "we believed there was, apparently, human error here because the proper arrangements, including a lookout and signs, were in place."

"However, we esteem Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz's decision to appoint a team to inquire into how to prevent such a horrific disaster from recurring," The Prime Minister said.
