Some 35 cadets in a military officer’s course in Israel’s South were diagnosed with the swine flu.

The soldiers, who were diagnosed Thursday, were described as having mild cases, according to reports. None of the soldiers required hospitalization.

The army is continuing to inoculate soldiers against the flu.

Israel suffered its first swine flu death, a 33-year-old Palestinian from eastern Jerusalem, last week.
