The two teenage girls who had wandered into a minefield on the Golan Heights on Friday were rescued by helicopter-borne IDF troops within an hour. The two girls had jumped the fence surrounding the minefield near the Golan community of Gadot. The IDF called on tourists visiting the Golan Heights not to enter minefields, which are marked with signs and surrounded by fences, for their own personal safety.
