Today (Tuesday), an IDF soldier was shot and wounded in a training accident. The soldier was evacuated in a stable and conscious state by a helicopter for further medical treatment and is in moderate condition. The IDF will investigate the incident.

Several months ago, 2 IDF soldiers were killed when their self-propelled armored vehicle overturned during a military drill. Four other IDF soldiers were injured in the crash, which occurred in the Golan Heights.

The drill was part of a field course for military commanders and soldiers from the Artillery Corps’ 411th Battalion were partaking in the exercise. The vehicle was traveling from Nafah Junction to Waset Junction on a dirt road parallel to the main road. The driver of the armored vehicle was blinded by the lights of the vehicles behind him.
