Israel’s Channel 10 reported that a segregated Bat Yam beach used by religious people was hit by a fiery object from the sky that is thought to be a meteor.


After people at the beach heard a loud blast, police were called and the area was cordoned off.


There are no reports of injuries. Police confirmed that the object was probably a meteor that fell from outer space.


The object is small and black-coloured. It will be examined by the Israel Geological Institute.


Two years ago, a meteor was spotted over Petah Tikvah. The bright light in the sky caused many residents to phone the police.
