Israel sent IDF forces and helicopters to assist in the rescue operations as 16 people were missing after a flash near the Dead Sea at the request of Jordan, where around 40 children and their teachers were on an outing on Thursday, the army said in a statement released Thursday.

The flash flood claimed the lives of 10 children, local authorities said.

“The IDF began assisting the rescue of the Jordanian children’s bus that was adrift near the Dead Sea on the Jordanian side, as a result of the floods in the southern region,” the IDF said in a statement. “At these moments, the soldiers assist in the rescue operations and locate the missing, and are doing everything in their power despite the weather conditions to assist the survivors in the flood zone.”
