IDF Warns Against Landmines in South

In the wake of the heavy rains that fell in Israel over the past several days, the IDF warned on Friday that some landmines may have been carried by the wind in the Arava and the Negev region.

Hikers are asked to exercise extreme caution along the Arava, Tamar and Hayun streams, walk only along marked areas and not climb fences. As well, the public is being asked not to touch suspicious objects that may be mines and to immediately alert security forces.
