The IDF's Twitter account detailing the activities of the Israeli teams on the island received a message Tuesday reporting a location where 150 children were stranded with no food or water.



Soldiers from the IDF Spokesperson's Office in Israel saw the message and relayed the information to IDF humanitarian aid forces in Haiti.



The forces in Haiti in turn relayed the specifics of the childrens' location to the UN.
