Israeli military teams operating in southeastern Turkey following the devastating earthquake helped rescue a 2-year-old boy from under the rubble, the IDF says.
Cpt. Alon Hominer, one of the Home Front Command search and rescue team members, says the engineering operation lasted several hours.
“We received a report from Turkish [authorities] that there were sounds of a baby crying, and we joined in the efforts,” Hominer says. He says the toddler is in good health and is being taken to a hospital.
