A veteran officer with the National Traffic Police took his own life on Sunday morning, leaving a note that linked the suicide to his time on the job, an officer with the traffic police said.

Police specified that trouble dealing with the difficult situations he saw working traffic accidents was only one of a number of problems that Ch. Supt Yoni Guez mentioned in his suicide note, along with problems in his personal life. They also said that he had only been working out in the field dealing with traffic accidents for around a month, after over two decades working in positions at the traffic police headquarters.

Guez, who shot himself with his service pistol on Sunday morning, was buried on Mt. Herzl in Jerusalem in the afternoon Sunday.
