A civilian tractor drove over an old landmine near the Rabin Border Terminal north of Eilat Wednesday afternoon, lightly injuring one soldier and a civilian. Both were taken for treatment at Eilat's Yoseftal Hospital. Recent flooding in the area apparently caused the landmine to resurface. It was initially reported that an IDF tank had hit a landmine.
