The IDF revealed on Friday that St.-Sgt. Ido Shapira, who was killed on Thursday during a raid in Jenin, was actually killed by "friendly fire." The initial findings of a committee set up by OC Central Command Yair Naveh to investigate the death were presented to Shapira's family. The army said it viewed the incident as "unfortunate and regretful," and that the IDF would continue to investigate the case until they uncovered exactly what happened.
