All hiking trails in the Darga, Og, Mashash, and Takoa creeks in the Judean Desert will be closed from Saturday until Monday, as well as all abseiling complexes in the area, the Nature and Parks Authority announced on Saturday morning due to fear of flooding.

Additionally, due to the increased heatwave quality of the air, lighting fires will be absolutely prohibited on Saturday and Sunday in all nature reserves, national parks, parks and KKL-JNF forests.
