9 teenagers die, 1 goes missing as flash flood hits Southern Israel

The group of 25 young people had been on a trip organized by Bnei Zion, a pre-military academy in Israel. They were hiking in the Nahal Tzafit riverbed, which is typically extremely dry. However, heavy rainfall over the last two days flooded the area.

Police, volunteers and military teams set out searching for the missing student but the search was suspended as night fell. The remaining 15 students from the group were rescued, and two of them were treated for hypothermia.
