An IDF soldier who was being held in a military prison collapsed Sunday and lost consciousness, the military said in a statement.

The female soldier collapsed at the army’s Prison 4 complex within the Tzrifin base.

She was taken in critical condition to a hospital, where her condition was later reported to be critical.

The IDF did not say why the soldier was in prison.

Last month an IDF soldier from the Nahal Brigade collapsed during training at an army base in the center of the country. He was taken to Hillel Yaffe Hospital in Hadera in serious condition, suffering from severe dehydration after a running exercise, according to reports.
