In the tragic incident, a 50-year-old man was seriously injured by smoke inhalation, and two other children were lightly injured.

The commander of the incident, Rabbi Reshef Oz Cohen, said: “When we arrived with reinforced teams, I noticed a lot of smoke surrounding the building and flames coming out of the apartment window. There was already an indication that a 12-year-old boy was trapped in the apartment. The firefighters continued to search and release smoke in the building’s apartments. A 12-year-old boy was evacuated in a critical condition, an adult in moderate condition and two children in a light condition.
