The Hercules airplane set to arrive in Romania Tuesday afternoon "has everything that is needed to respond to the incident," IDF Spokesman Brig. Gen. Avi Benayahu said in a Tuesday interview with Army Radio with respect to the search and rescue effort for the Yasour helicopter that crashed in Romania.

An IAF team has already secured the helicopter crash and is waiting for medical and rabbinical teams to arrive on the Hercules plane to assist in the effort of identifying and repatriating the bodies of the dead servicemen.
