Dozens of dead bats have fallen out of the sky in Israel, in what some are suggesting is a biblical prophecy coming true.
Adi Moskowits noticed the dead creatures in Ramat Gan before another person, several miles away in the Pardes Katz neighbourhood, shared a similar sight on social media.
The bats appear to be young and health, which has left experts flummoxed.
Nora Lifshitz, founder of the Israeli Bat Society, said: ''The phenomenon is extremely rare.''
She suggested they could have dropped dead as a result of cold weather, although she insisted that this was merely a theory.
According to local media, a religious site that often uses Bible verses to explains strange events claims the incident shows the world could be coming to an end.
They use the passage of Zephania 1:3 to support their beliefs, which read: ''I will sweep away man and beast; I will sweep away the birds of the sky and the fish of the sea.
''I will make the wicked stumble and I will destroy mankind from the face of the Earth.''
