Update from Dead Sea: IDF Searching for 2 Infiltrators

Highway 90 in the Dead Sea area remains closed while the IDF continues to search for two infiltrators from Jordan and a blaze rages at a nature reserve. Firefighters have the fire under control, but the nature reserve suffered heavy damage.

The fire was set by IDF flares and mortar shells as they searched for the infiltrators, who apparently are not terrorists.
