On Saturday, Police divers and other rescue crews found the last remaining body of the three family members that drowned in the Yatir reservoir in the northern Negev, Army Radio reported.

On Friday afternoon, a group of people from the Beduin community of Hura entered the fenced reservoir to draw water. Two of them, brothers, apparently slipped on the plastic lining surrounding the reservoir and fell into the water, unable to clime out again. Their cousin tried to rescue them but also drowned.
