One Builder Dies, Others Wounded in Tel Aviv Building Collapse 

Al-Quds, 3 Dzulhijjah 1437/5 September 2016  (MINA)  – One workman died and about 20 others suffered different injuries after a building under construction collapsed on Monday (5/9) in Tel Aviv city.

The Israeli police say five people are still missing and believed to be trapped under the debris, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) reported.

A police spokesperson affirmed that dozens of workmen were inside a multi-level parking garage under construction when it collapsed, without stating the nationalities of the victims.

There are fears that those victims could be Palestinians since there are thousands of them working in the construction field in Israeli areas.

Israel ignores appeals made by trade units to provide builders with safety means to protect them against work-related injuries, which happen frequently to them. (T/P008/R07)
