Five Israeli nationals were among the dead, Israel’s foreign ministry says.

Images from the scene show the wreckage lying in a steep wooded area.

Officials said two survivors, children aged about five and nine, were airlifted to a hospital in Turin but the older child later died. 

The younger child – who is also an Israeli national – underwent surgery and is in a critical condition.

“We are devastated,” Marcella Severino, mayor of Stresa, told broadcaster RAI.

How did the crash happen?

It reportedly happened at about 12:30 local time (10:30 GMT) on Sunday.

The cause of the incident remains unclear, but local reports suggest the cable may have failed about 300m (984ft) from the top of the mountain.

The cabin fell about 20m to the ground and rolled over down the slope before being stopped by trees, Mayor Severino said.

Nearby hikers heard a loud hiss before the accident, she added.

Walter Milan, an alpine rescue spokesman, told television network RaiNews24 that the cable car was left “crumpled”.

Rescuers faced a crash site on steep and difficult terrain. A fire service vehicle overturned while responding but no-one was injured. 

Stresa’s mayor said victims had been found both inside and outside the wreckage of the cable car.

Luisa Tesserin, a 27-year-old student from Genoa, told the AFP news agency that she and friends had been on the service about an hour before the crash happened.

“When we got on, the cable car didn’t give any strange signals, everything was fine. When they told us the news, we were shocked,” Ms Tesserin said.

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi described the crash as a “tragic accident” and said he was receiving updates from local and national officials.

“I express the condolences of the whole government to the families of the victims, with a special thought for the seriously injured children and their families,” he said in a statement. 

Infrastructure Minister Enrico Giovannini has announced an inquiry into the incident with a local prosecutor’s office also opening an investigation. 

EU Council President Charles Michel offered his condolences to the victims’ loved ones in a tweet written in Italian, adding that “Europe is in mourning with you”.

What do we know about the cable car?

The website for the Stresa-Alpine-Mottarone service said it usually takes 20 minutes to transport passengers 1,491m above sea level.

The cable car originally opened in 1970 and was closed for maintenance between 2014 and 2016.

Mottarone is situated between Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta, offering scenic views of the region for tourists.

Each cable car can usually hold about 40 passengers. The service had recently reopened following the lifting of coronavirus restrictions.

#AceNewsServices – JERUSALEM – Dec.03 – Two people were injured in a stabbing attack Wednesday afternoon, after a terrorist began attacking civilians at a Rami-Levy superstore in Mishor Adumim, near Ma’ale Adumim in the Jerusalem area.

Magen David Adom (MDA) forces arrived at the scene shortly after the attack began at around 4:20 p.m., and gave emergency first-aid treatment to the injured. Both are men in their mid-50s and suffering from shoulder and head wounds; according to MDA spokesman Zaki Heller, at least one of the injured was an actual MDA paramedic. 

The terrorist was apprehended and has sustained light injuries after being shot by a security guard at the scene. The armed Israeli was not employed at the supermarket, which is frequented by Palestinians and Israelis, but was passing by with his weapon at the time.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said in a statement to AFP roughly two hours after the stabbing that the alleged attacker was a 16-year-old from the Arab village of Al-Azariya, east of Jerusalem.

Two additional suspects have now been arrested as well, Walla! News reports about one hour after the attack, and eyewitnesses say that the Israel Security Agency (ISA) is interrogating them at the scene. It remains unclear whether they were involved. 

“Near the cash registers there were two people, injured, about 50 years old, fully conscious with stab wounds in the upper body,” Fadi Badarne, an MDA medic, stated to the press. “They told us that as they were shopping, they were jumped upon suddenly by a terrorist, who stabbed them.”

“We gave them first aid at the scene and evacuated them to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem while fully conscious, with moderate injuries,” Badarne continued. “The terrorist was shot in the limbs and treated there as well; he’s in mild to moderate condition.” 

Hadassah Medical Center representatives added just before 5:30 pm that two additional people had been admitted to Hadassah Hospital at Mount Scopus and are being treated for acute anxiety.

Photos and some video of the attack – and its aftermath – have begun surfacing on social media. 

Ruti Dahan, 50, who works at a nearby kindergarten, was shopping at the supermarket when she heard three gunshots.

“I turned around and I saw someone, who I suppose was the security guard, shouting ‘Lie down, lie down’,” she told AFP

She said that the presumed attacker tried to stand up after being shot but four people wrestled him to the ground.

“For years I’ve been coming here twice a week to do my shopping,” she said. “Now I think I’ll switch to the Internet.”

Initial reports indicated that the attack was a shooting, but MDA medics and Channel 2 reported shortly after reports first aired that the attack was, in fact, a stabbing – and that the terrorist was not shot and killed, but merely injured. 

Meanwhile, Rami-Levy chain owner Rami Levy stated Wednesday night that the Mishor Adumim store will reopen shortly.

#AceNewsServices – JERUSALEM – Nov.18 – Four people have been killed and at least 6 wounded when two assailants attacked worshippers with knives and axes in synagogue in North Jerusalem in the morning.

Israeli police say both attackers were shot dead on the spot by officers. Spokeswoman Luba Samri described the incident as a“terrorist attack,” according to AP.

Israeli media reports range from three to six dead in the incident.

Israel’s ambulance service spokesman Magen David Adom told Army Radio that medics were so far treating three people, one critically injured, while more wounded remained on the scene.

The attacked synagogue is situated on Agasi Street, in the ultra-Orthodox Had Nof neighbourhood of Jerusalem.

“We were praying in synagogue in the morning, we heard gunshots from downstairs… one shot, two shots and then a flurry of shots,” a witness who was inside the building told AP.

The attackers were reportedly Palestinian menfrom east Jerusalem.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that Israel is going to ‘respond harshly’ to this latest terror attack.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has condemned an attack on a Jerusalem synagogue.

“The presidency condemns the attack on Jewish worshipers in their place of prayer and condemns the killing of civilians, no matter who is doing it,” Reuters cited Abbas’s office as saying in a statement.

Tensions between Israelis and Palestinians have been running particularly high over the last two weeks after the EU’s newly-appointed foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, called for the establishment of a Palestinian state in the next few years.

This caused a number of symbolic votes in favour of recognition of the Palestinian state in parliaments of several European states, such as Sweden, France and UK.

Spanish MPs are expected to vote in support of a Palestinian state on November 18.

Last weekend Israeli Haaretz revealed a secret EU document that Israel could soon face sanctionsfrom Brussels if Tel Aviv makes any further attempts to pose obstacles to a two-state solution with occupied Palestine.

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman’s reply to that was that Israel will never stop its settlement constructions in occupied East Jerusalem.

On Monday the conflict escalated even further as a Palestinian bus driver was found hanged inside his vehicle at a depot in Jerusalem, with the Israeli police saying the man committed suicide, while the driver’s family claim he was lynched by Israelis.

#AceBreakingNews – NIGERIA – Nov.10 – Several dozen students were killed Monday when a suicide bomber detonated an explosion at a school in north-east Nigeria, according to media reports.

The Associated Press reported the bomber was disguised in a school uniform.

The suicide bomb attack killed 47 students and injured 79 others on Monday in north-east Nigeria, AFP said.“There was an explosion detonated by a suicide bomber” when students gathered for morning assembly at their school in Potiskum, Yobe state, according to national police spokesman Emmanuel Ojukwu.

However, the Associated Press said soldiers who rushed to the scene were chased away by a crowd throwing stones and shouting that they are angry at the military’s inability to halt a 5-year-old insurgency by the Islamist extremist group Boko Haram.

The attack so far has nobody claiming responsibility but was likely carried out by Islamist extremists from the Boko Haram group, he added, who have been more active lately.
