Soldier stabs buddy to test armored vest

While Defense Minister Liberman is chiding the press for keeping soldiers from doing their jobs, a couple of Keystone troops are showing what a good job they can do.

Namely, a soldier in the Golan Heights is being treated for light stab wounds after being knifed by his friend.

The reason for the stabbing? Reportedly to check how well their armored vests withstand knife jabs.

The test wasn’t strictly necessary, as in January, a Channel 1 reporter was treated for light wounds after testing a knife-proof vest and being stabbed in the back with a commando knife.
