One man was moderately injured by the flood in Nahal Aogo in the south on Saturday after a group of five hikers were stranded in the area when they ignored the weather warnings.
An injured man, 50, was evacuated to the Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba.
The police and the IDF have jointly rescued a total of 20 people in the Negev, including hikers and other jeeps. Police and IDF have completed rescue on Saturday night with the help of volunteers, helicopters and night-vision equipment.
The police repeatedly called on the public to refrain from traveling to the area.
On Friday, the search and rescue unit of IDF 669 was deployed to find four planes in Nahalu Og, who were stranded after they were washed with water.
"Despite the adverse weather conditions, four hikers have been saved from 669 fighters," the army said, adding that one was hospitalized for minor injuries.
Sharp weather also hit the Jordan, causing much more damage, with at least 12 dead and dozens of missing. Authorities have evacuated more than 3,700 tourists from the ancient city of Petra on Friday, officials said.
Visitors were taken to safe areas before the floods flooded parts of the mountain town, famous for its stone-gravel ruins, said government spokeswoman Jumana Ghunaimat.
Authorities declared a state of emergency in Aqaba, further south, since parachutes started in the afternoon.
Civilian divers seek five people whose car was flooded in Madaba, southwest of the capital, state Petra's state news agency said.
