An IDF medical team began transferring the victims wounded in Wednesday's attack to a Hercules transport aircraft at the Burgas airport Thursday morning for evacuation back to Israel.

The medical core sent some 30 officers and soldiers comprising surgeons, trauma experts and anaesthesiologists to treat the wounded and prep for their return to Israel.

The first plane load of wounded is expected to return to Israel by Thursday afternoon.
