Starting on Wednesday, the Golani Brigade will recommence training, but without live-fire urban warfare exercises, the IDF announced Tuesday. Life-fire exercises will only be authorized once the investigation into Monday's accident in which IDF soldier Mor Cohen was shot in the head by a bullet and killed is concluded. The accident took place during a live-fire exercise in an urban warfare center on the Golan Heights. According to the preliminary investigation, a bullet penetrated one of the concrete walls inside the facility. The IDF posthumously promoted Cohen to the rank of corporal.
