MDA Warns Israelis to Drink and not Overheat
Magen David Adom (MDA), the Israeli Red Shield Emergency medical organization, warned citizens to drink plenty of water in order not to overheat. A heat wave has hit Israel, and will remain for the next few days.
MDA recommended that people drink five liters of water a day and prefer cold water over hot. On Tuesday, two men died while hiking due to the heat.
