Ywn Search Continues for Missing Swimmers in the Kinneret
large force of police and volunteers is continuing the search for three missing swimmers in the Kinneret. The search includes divers from the Zaka and police diving teams.
The three missing men are Itamar Ochana, 19, from Kiryat Shmona; Nachman Itach, 21, from Betar Illit; and a 17-year-old from Netanya. They are missing since Wednesday. It appears the strong current pulled the three in separate instances while swimming in the Kinneret.
Chananel, a brother of Itamar, used his Facebook page to ask the tzibur to be mispallel for his brother, Itamar ben Rachel. Police boats continued the search during the night.
