35 were taken to the Western Galilee Hospital in Nahariya and 16 were taken to Ziv Medical Center in Safed, all in light conditions with nausea and eye burns.The incident was an apparent gas leak from a tank used for pool water purification.”The patients inhaled a poisonous gas and they are being treated using inhalation,” said Dr. Tzvi Sheleg of Western Galilee Hospital. “On recommendation of the poisonings center, they will be hospitalized for supervision purposes,” added Dr. Sheleg.According to Kfar Havradim residents, a fog of suffocating gas was felt throughout the town for several hours. 

Israel Police have opened an investigation on the matter and have detained the truck driver responsible for filling the gas tank used at the pool, on suspicion he mixed between two toxic substances and caused the leak.
This is a developing story.
