42 children were reported missing on Monday during a school trip in Nahal Og near the Dead Sea.
By 23:00 all of the children were safely back with the rescuers and given food and blankets.
The children, between the 5th and 8th grade, were first reported lost at around 7:00 p.m. on Monday evening.
Volunteers in the Israel Police's Megilot Dead Sea Rescue Unit and other units arrived in the area and began to investigate.
Missing schoolchildren in Nahal Og are led back to safety on March 28, 2022.
Drones were initially only able to find part of the children but eventually managed to locate all of them.
"Some 42 children were disconnected from the group and went off in direct directions," Matan Morad, a member of the rescue team, explained. »
