Two Teens Die in Flash Floods as Heavy Rain and Hail Hits Israel

Two teenagers died in flash floods on Wednesday as Israel endured heavy rains and hail on Wednesday. Towns in the northern Negev were hit hard by the rains and Dimona and Arad saw heavy flooding and all the nearby streams overflowed.

A 16-old-year died after being swept away by floods in the Mamshit Stream in the southern Negev. He was swept away near his home in a Bedouin encampment a few hundred meters from the Mamshit National Park. He was found about 3 kilometers further down the stream in critical condition by a relative, who called in the rescue unit. He was evacuated by an Air Force helicopter but died on the way to the hospital.
