IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz suspended a live fire exercise in the South Wednesday morning after two artillery shells accidentally diverted from their planned target, endangering the lives of soldiers who were training there.

Gantz had arrived at the brigade-level exercise along with OC Central Command Maj.-Gen. Avi Mizrahi and OC Ground Forces Command Maj.-Gen. Sami Turgeman.
