      IDF Issues Minefield Alert

      The Israel Defense Forces issued a warning to hikers, especially in the north, Friday, not to enter minefields and other prohibited areas for any reason. People have been injured by mines in fields covered with snow. The wet weather has also been known to cause mines to on and below the surface.

      Minefields are usually marked with barbed wire and signs containing red triangles on yellow backgrounds.
