An IDF soldier died in a car accident in northern Israel on Thursday afternoon, the army said.

Another soldier was lightly injured when the Hummer in which the soldiers were traveling flipped over near the Malkiya base in the Upper Galilee, along the border with Lebanon.

Security forces were investigating the incident.

The army said the family of the deceased soldier, who was named as Corporal Elhai Sheetrit, 19, from Ashkelon, had been notified.
