According to one of the sources in the investigation, there is a significant difficulty in understanding what preceded the shooting, how a bullet remained in the rifle's swallowing house, and the need to prove what exactly caused the shooting, especially when the fighter claims not to pull the trigger.

"At this stage no one has conclusive evidence or evidence that can determine one hundred percent what happened," said a source from the 162nd Division



.

Officials in the battalion insisted that this was an unusual and extreme incident that did not characterize the level of safety in the battalion.

Simultaneously with the MPI's investigation, a command investigation is being conducted to clarify the circumstances of the incident in order to learn lessons from it and prevent similar incidents in the future



.

Following the incident, a team of experts was appointed to examine the factors that preceded the incident, the safety norms in the unit and the manner in which the incident was handled.

Naturally, we will not be able to comment on the findings of the tests that have not yet been completed. "
