The IDF medical and rescue team in Haiti will finish its operations in the next few days and its members will return to Israel by Thursday, after completing its mission in the region, the army announced Monday.

The decision came following the arrival of additional aid forces to Haiti, including the United States military and other, civilian aid units, who are now providing regular medical service, said the IDF, adding that many of the local hospitals have reached a sufficient level of functionality.

On Tuesday, the Israeli team is scheduled to cease receiving new patients and begin preparing towards returning home on a direct flight on Wednesday. The delegation is scheduled to arrive at the Ben Gurion Airport by Thursday afternoon.
