Police report that most of the search efforts are concentrated on the eastern shore of the Kinneret near the areas where the three missing young men were recently seen.

 

Police are also asking travelers to refrain from entering the water on undeclared beaches that do not have rescue services. Additionally, vacationers are also requested to not use sea mattresses or rafts due to the risk of drifting.

The hazards of entering the Kinneret are well known to the public and authorities, demonstrated by the fact that rescue teams were forced to pull no fewer than 80 people from the lake who had fallen prey to its treacherous currents last week, which have only been exacerbated by recent inclement weather.
