Prosecutors close probe into death of soldier at outdoor rave

Prosecutors have closed a criminal investigation into the death of an off-duty Israel Defense Forces soldier at an outdoor rave last year.

Ariel Yoav Tzafrir, a 19-year-old soldier from the West Bank settlement of Barkan, died after collapsing during a party at the Pura Nature Reserve in the south in September 2020, on the hottest day recorded in Israel’s history.

Prosecutors concluded that the party organizers could not be held criminally responsible for Tzafrir’s death.
