  • 7 teens dead several missing in flash floods

A flash flood killed 10 Israeli teens during a school-organized hike near the Dead Sea, and two educators have now been arrested for negligence in the horror, police said Friday. It is reported by The Times of Israel.

Nine girls and one boy, majority aged 17 or 18, were swept away to their deaths yesterday when flash floods engulfed Nahal Tzafit, a riverbed canyon in the Arava region, south of the Dead Sea.

The nine girls and one boy killed at Nahal Tsafit, south of the Dead Sea, were taking part in the Bnei Zion pre-army program.

Israeli media said they belonged to a group of around 25, who were members of a pre-army preparatory programme.


The hike the students were on was meant to be a "bonding trip" for them, according to officials.

Nine of the teenagers' bodies were found in the course of the afternoon and evening on Thursday, and the 10th was discovered early on Friday morning.

On Thursday, Israeli television stations canceled scheduled broadcasts to provide live coverage of the dramatic rescue operation, which included the use of five military helicopters and search and rescue teams from a special unit. "We are all praying for better news", he added. Heavy downpours can cause flash floods to roar down the riverbed.

Israel's president, Reuven Rivlin, said on Twitter, "The state of Israel is mourning the loss of young promising lives in the heavy disaster". We will strengthen and lend help to the forces who are now working to rescue, find and treat those injured. "We are closely following the updates from the south and send a warm embrace to the anxious families", he said. "I didn't ask any questions".
