Rav Hayim Pinto Fights Iran in a Unique Way

Kikar reports that Rav Hayim Pinto, the Chief Rabbi of Ashdod and of Kiryat Malachi, revealed that he has 6 Tzadikim buried in his office in Kiryat Malachi.  People only knew about 4.  One of the new ones is Rav Shlomo Buzaglo.  (I'm not sure, but it seems from the article that the other one is his wife.)

(The only reference to Rav Shlomo Buzaglo that I found online after a superficial search was here, where he is listed among other rabbis of Morocco and lived in Fez about 300 years ago.)

An event was held in the middle of the night for Selihot along with Shofar-blowing and Tikkun Karet, where this was revealed to the community.

Rav Pinto said, "My office was closed up until now, but since we are hearing sounds of war, we then said that with Hashem's help, they will stand as a merit to Am Yisrael," referring to the Tzaddikim buried in his office.

He added, "I brought them for the sake of Heaven, I suffered for them for the sake of Heaven, I endangered myself for the sake of heaven, I went around Arab countries for the sake of Heaven, and they are here for the sake of Heaven - and the whole purpose is to protect Am Yisrael."

According to Rav Pinto, the graves were brought 23 years ago, while the other 4 were brought 25 years ago.

Meaning, Rav Pinto, coordinated to have the remains of Tzadikim A'H from Morocco disenterred and brought to Eretz Yisrael??

Is this correct?? Wow??

Why would he be keeping them in his office?? Is this a place to have such holy remains??

Heavy duty..

in other words, don't cross Rav Haim Pinto.

I recall reading in another Kikar article that one of the graves is that of Rav Hayyim Vital zt"l. Looks like one of the comments on the article says the same thing.
He was buried in Damascus, so that must have been quite a feat to bring him over!
