The drill was staged by cadets serving at an officers’ instruction base. The exercise was being conducted in Za’ura, an abandoned Syrian town in the northern Golan Heights.

The strategic plateau was captured by Israel in the 1967 war and subsequently annexed in 1981, a move not recognized by the international community.

The IDF is investigating the accident, with special attention being paid to the tank commander’s judgment and his decision to conduct the exercise at the specific location.
