Two IDF combat duty soldiers were injured when their vehicle turned over during a training exercise in the Golan Heights on Monday morning, an IDF spokesperson said. The vehicle was a Caterpillar D9 bulldozer, according to the Times of Israel.
One was badly injured and the other lightly injured. Both men were taken to Rambam Hospital in Haifa by helicopter to get medical care and their families were notified.
The IDF will investigate the accident and matters that might have contributed to it such as how the teams were trained and the weapons used during the exercise. Major General Kobi Barak, who commanded the soldiers, will appoint a team to oversee the investigation.
Earlier this year, in April, an IDF soldier was killed
after his tank fell down into a ravine on the Egyptian border. Three others were injured from the accident.
