Three IDF soldiers collapsed from heat stroke during a training exercise on Tuesday, Army radio reported Wednesday morning.

Contrary to standard procedure, the soldiers' commanding officers did not check the weather before beginning training. Even after the soldiers complained, the exercise continued until they collapsed. The commander of the unit has begun an investigation into the incident."I thought the IDF learned a lesson from my son's death," said Ayelet Sela, the mother of a soldier who passed away from heat stroke in a similar incident three years ago, "but this event tells me that it was not enough.
