When Fire and Rescue teams arrived at the scene on Saturday, they saw that cracks had formed in the building. Some residents who tried to leave their homes reported that they could not open doors, because the shape of the building was altered, Israel Police reported.

Rescue teams worked to extract residents, who were told they could not return to the building. The street adjacent to the building was also closed off by police.

An engineer for the municipality inspected the building and supported the decision to evacuate residents, saying there is a definite risk of the building collapsing. 

A senior engineer from Holon’s Municipality confirmed that there is a real risk of the building collapsing and the residents were instructed to stay away from the building for a few days.
