A tank ran over a soldier during a training exercise in the Golan Heights on Monday. The soldier was airlifted to Rambam Hospital in Haifa in critical condition.

The soldier, from the Golani Brigade, suffered a serious head injury when a tank driving in reverse hit him.

The incident occurred during a joint exercise of the 188th armored brigade and the Golani infantry brigade. Immediately after the accident the exercise was halted and military police investigators arrived at the scene.
