JERICHO (Ma’an) – Rescue teams of the Palestinian civil defense service on Sunday afternoon found three men who were swept away by floods in the area of Fasayil in the central Jordan Valley.
Jericho civil defense services said in a statement that heavy rains which fell in the afternoon caused “deep and vehement” floods. As a result, three Bedouin men who live in Fasayil were swept away along with dozens of sheep.
Rescue teams were alerted and they carried out a wide-scale search until the three men were found. They were in good health, according to the statement.
But several sheep died in the floods.
