Heavy rains flood military bases in central Israel

Heavy rains in central Israel cause significant flooding at military bases in the Tel Aviv area, causing damage to buildings and equipment, the Israel Defense Forces says.

According to the military, the flooding occurred in the IDF’s headquarters, known as the Kirya, in central Tel Aviv and in the Gelilot base north of the city, which houses many intelligence units.

“Damage was caused to structures and to communications systems. There is no harm to operational capability,” the IDF says.
