An Israeli delegation of aid workers and search and rescue teams arrived in Brazil overnight and immediately headed to the scene of the devastating dam collapse which has killed dozens of locals and left hundreds missing.

On Friday, a dam in Minas Gerais in southeastern Brazil collapsed, causing a catastrophic flood in Brumadinho.

Authorities now say that 58 bodies have been recovered, with 305 people still listed as missing, including 260 employees of the Vale mining company which operated the dam.

Early Monday morning, an Israeli army spokesperson announced that an IDF delegation had arrived in Brazil to aid with the rescue efforts.

“Overnight, the IDF aid delegation to assist in the area of the collapsed dam landed in Brazil.
The delegation will soon commence its search and rescue efforts in accordance with the local authorities.”
