On Wednesday evening, an Israeli tank crashed and flipped over during a military exercise in the Golan Heights in northern Israel. As a result, one Israeli soldier lost his life, while three others were wounded and taken to a local hospital, the Israeli Haaretz newspaper reported on Thursday.

The killed soldier was identified as a 20-year-old tank commander in the 401st Brigade from Ramat Hasharon, Sgt. Ido Ben-Ari. The Army has notified the family of Ben-Ari about his death and started an investigation of circumstances of the incident, seeking to know what caused tank to flip over.

The incident became the latest in a number of training accidents in the Golan, which happened in recent months.

In August, a collision between two vehicles occurred on the Golan Heights. As a result, seven Israeli soldiers were wounded, one of them very severely. In July, a grenade explosion occurred near an entrance to a military outpost in Har Dov region – two Israeli soldiers were killed and three others were injured.
