When a man neglected a group of five hikers, a group of five hikers were partially wounded by floods in Nahal Arod in the south after the gathering of five hikers.

The 50-year-old injured man was evacuated at the Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba for treatment.

Police and IDF together saved 20 people in Negev, including hikers and others' jeeps. Police and IDF completed their Saturday night rescue operations with the help of volunteers, helicopters and night vision equipment.

The police repeatedly called on his people to refrain from traveling to the area.

On Friday, IDF's elite search and rescue unit 669 was deployed in Nahal Og to find four strollers stranded after washing with floodwaters.

"Despite bad weather, four hikers were rescued by 669 fighters," the army said, adding that the army was hospitalized for minor injuries.

The harsh weather also hit Jordan, causing at least 12 people to die and dozens of losses with even greater damage. Officials said the authorities released more than 3,700 tourists from the ancient city of Petra on Friday.

Government spokesman Jumana Ghunaimat said that visitors were taken to safe areas before flooded parts of the mountainous city covered with rocky stones.

The authorities declared a state of emergency in Aqaba in the south as it started in the afternoon.

The state news agency Petra sought civil defense divers in the Madaba area, southwest of the capital, looking for five people who were swept away by the floods of the car.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry said three Israelis in the south of Jordan are missing and are safe and in good condition.
