Brooklyn-born Sgt. , one of three IDF soldiers who went missing in action during the Battle of Sultan Yacoub in the 1982 Lebanon War, at the age of 21, was buried on Jerusalem’s Mount Herzl Military Cemetery on April 4. Baumel’s remains were recovered in Syria with the aid of the Russian Army. “I promise we will continue to invest every effort to also return our other missing and fallen, including Zachary’s comrades – Tzvi Feldman and Yehuda Katz – as well as Eli Cohen, Ron Arad, Oron Shaul, Hadar Goldin and other MIAs,” said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “We will not cease this sacred mission.”

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Cave Research Center (CRC), announced at the end of March that researchers had discovered the world’s longest salt cave in the Mount Sodom area near the Dead Sea. The 7,000-year-old Malham Cave, which is 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) long, was traced with the aid of laser technology by an international team led by the CRC. The record for the world’s longest cave was previously held by Iran.
