The death of a special forces candidate last month will remain a mystery, a senior military official said on Tuesday. The official said the IDF had encountered difficulty in the investigation into the death of Aharon Tzarfati, 17, during a selection tryout for the Navy's elite commando force, Army Radio reported. "We will never know what caused his death," the official said. He cited the fact that no autopsy was performed, by request of the family, as the main reason. The official said the investigation was also made difficult by the fact that no one actually saw what happened to the youth while he was in the water. The incident occurred during a night diving exercise.
