Israel to Send Rescue Aid to Brazil Dam Disaster

Brazil’s newly-inaugurated President Jair Bolsonaro learned that being a friend of Zion has its benefits as Israeli Prime Minister promised to send a team to help with a tragic dam collapse that killed at least 40.

The dam, used to store byproducts of an iron ore mining operation owned by Vale SA, burst on Friday. Located in southeastern Brazil, the region has a thriving mining industry. Rescue operations saved over 200 people but authorities believe almost 300 more are still missing.

Firefighters reported that a bus they said was likely filled with bodies but they lacked the specialized equipment needed to bury it out from under tons of mud. In another tragic aspect, it was reported that approximately 100 workers were having lunch in a canteen when they were engulfed by mud.
“Unfortunately, at this point, the chances of finding survivors are minimal. We’re likely to just be rescuing bodies,” Romeu Zema, governor of Minas Gerais told local press.
