Download PDF for this date

A reserve soldier was killed Tuesday morning and two other soldiers were injured in the second fatal road accident in two days involving an Israel Defense Force jeep.

It occurred in Halhoul, near Hebron in the West Bank, under circumstances that were not immediately clear. The driver is believed to have lost control of the jeep, possibly because a tire blew out.

The soldier who died was identified as staff Sgt. Rafi Baruch. The two injured soldiers were taken to Hadassah University Hospital, Ein Kerem.

An IDF soldier was killed and two others injured only 24 hours earlier, when their jeep overturned in the southern Lebanon security zone.
