A technical failure was the probable cause of a deadly Cobra helicopter crash
earlier this month, the IDF announced on Thursday, following the release of
intermediate results of an investigation.
Reserve pilots Lt.-Col. (res.)
Noam Ron, 49, and Maj. (res.) Erez Flekser, 31, were killed when their aircraft
crashed and broke up near Gadera.
The results of the investigation were
presented on Thursday to the bereaved families. Beforehand, they were shown to
IAF chief Maj.-Gen. Amir Eshel.
