A tearful firefighter spokesman said the blaze had traveled 1500 meters in less than three minutes, adding, “the bus had no chance. The passengers tried to escape but were all burned alive. It was a horrific scene.” The spokesman added that the fire was very far from the road on which the bus was traveling when it first set off towards the prison, but had spread far faster than expected.

Its a horrible tragedy that has struck Israel in the event of Hanukkah. My condolences goes to the families who have lost their loved once, my brothers and sisters.
But while Israel looks back to 170 B.C during Hanukkah, it would be better to look into the present.
Who is the Messiah?
Why is God’s wrath and Great Tribulation coming up on the World?
The video presented on Jerusalem Post, reveals that the Sun does not shine properly in Northern Israel, covered by smoke as fare West as Haifa.
Everything about this tragedy is Biblical. But it shall get worse, before Jesus the Messiah comes and bring judgment on the whole Human race. Jesus spoke about these kind of events taking place, just before His return.
When I snuff you out, I will cover the heavens and darken their stars; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon will not give its light.
“But in those days, following that distress, “‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light;
The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night.
(end of scripture).
Behold: Out of darkness, the Eternal Light will shine. The Messiah:
There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.
Look at this video from Northern Israel, with the Sun darken by the smoke.
