2 IDF soldiers killed in truck accident

Two IDF soldiers were killed in a tragic road accident. 

Two IDF soldiers tragically lost their lives on Thursday when the truck they were driving near the southern city of Eilat overturned.

They were pronounced dead at the scene by IDF medical teams

The accident occurred on Highway 12, near the Division 80 military base, a road known for its dangerous and curving route.

Eliyahu Yanun, a volunteer EMT with United Hatzalah who arrived at the scene from Eilat, recounted how “there were still two young people trapped inside the vehicle that had overturned. Fire and Rescue teams worked tirelessly in the heat to extricate them from the vehicle. Tragically, at the end of their efforts, the two youngsters were pronounced dead at the scene.”
