Drive over Mine Kills Two

Two Eilat residents were killed this week when they drove their jeep over an anti-tank mine in the southern Negev.

Rafael Buskira, 42, and Chaim Sadrusi, 30, had driven into an old minefield near kibbutz Elot, located near Eilat.

The area was fenced off and had warning signs posted, according to Israel Radio.

Soldiers worked for several hours before they were able to recover the bodies.
