An unusual incident: a soldier was killed and three others were injured by a non-standard fallout explosion - collected contrary to procedures | Israel today


Two more soldiers were injured in the Kafir military base • The circumstances of the incident are not yet clear

An IDF soldier was killed and three others were injured tonight (between Saturday and Sunday) at an IDF base in the center of the country as a result of an explosion whose origin has not yet been determined.

The circumstances of the incident are under investigation.

The three soldiers were evacuated to receive medical treatment at the hospital, where one soldier was seriously injured and two were slightly injured.

Around midnight, one soldier was killed and another was in a serious condition, in a weapons accident. No NKL.

In addition to a command investigation, a military intelligence investigation was also opened.

Yesterday, close to midnight, an explosion was heard from a living room of soldiers undergoing advanced training at the Kafir Army. Medical forces of the Army arrived at the scene, began resuscitation operations and treatment of the wounded.

A helicopter was launched to the scene.

A few minutes later, the injured man was pronounced dead.

Injured 1 seriously conscious and another 2 lightly.

This is the explosion of a Metul bomb, fell.

Not standard ammunition that was distributed to the soldiers but something that a soldier probably found in training.

The ammunition was collected against the safety instructions and put into the living room, and yesterday it exploded.

If you find a fallen one, you should mark the spot, move away from it, report it to the headquarters in charge of the fire areas.

Those in charge of the fire areas are obligated not to allow the force to enter until the fallen is eliminated and to remove the fallen as quickly as possible.

The ammunition did not explode inside the soldier's weapon, apparently it is not a matter of play or criminality with weapons but a blow that the ammunition received - maybe someone kicked the bag that the ammunition was in or it fell.

Seven soldiers were in the room.

It is still unclear how the ammunition arrived.

The soldiers claimed that they did not see the dead soldier playing with this ammunition or holding it in his hand.

It could be a MCL bomb or it could be a Metul bomb. They look the same, we are still checking what it is. Diameter 40 mm, spray.

There are two metalists in the room, the dead man is a metalist himself and the bomb that exploded is a bomb he kept with him.

The explosion occurred near the dead man's bed and probably from the bag of the dead soldier.

From the initial investigation the doctor was there, got to the point.

There was rapid medical treatment there that failed and could not keep the dead alive.
