The IDF field hospital established in Kathmandu is the biggest ever built by the Israeli military, Channel 2 news reports.
Earlier, an Israeli hiker rescued from Nepal describes a harrowing scene.
“It was pure luck and maybe written in the stars that we made it to the helicopter,” says Roi Dormer, an Israeli who was rescued from the Langtang area in Nepal.
Speaking on Channel 2 news, Dormer says “we saw the helicopter on the other side of the river, we just ran… next to us there was a whole village erased. We saw locals with a look on their face like their whole family died,” Dormer says.
Another hiker says “there are mud avalanches and snow avalanches all the time. Anyone who’s not rescued from there will definitely die.”
