It was the 22nd of May 2021, and we were spending a beautiful day, a happy Sabbath together. No smoke, no panic, the evening air promised the city a peaceful night. All the activities of the evening were going on, as usual. We perceived no threat.
The Sabbath ended peacefully, and around 6:30 pm, there were flashes of lightning tinted by a red color that we dismissed and attributed to a fire since the houses at the ends of the city are built of boards.
