40 lightly injured in Mt. Meron Hilula celebrations

Some 40 people were brought to Ziv Hospital in Safed overnight Saturday from Mt. Meron where hundreds of thousands came to celebrate the Hilula, the Lag Ba'Omer commemoration of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai's death.
All of those brought to the hospital were in light condition, suffering from minor wounds and smoke inhalation. Despite a nation-wide strike at public hospitals Ziv Hospital in Safed was operating normally because of the gathering.
