Two brothers drowned Friday evening in a water reservoir in the northern Negev. Their cousin, who entered the water with them, was missing.
Rescue forces were alerted to the area, near the community of Meitar, after family members of the three noticed that they had not come out of the water. The bodies of the two brothers were found after a few hours. Searches for the cousin’s body were halted after sundown and will be renewed Saturday morning.
