An IDF
officer was moderately injured Thursday after being accidentally shot
by a soldier during a training exercise near the Hawara checkpoint,
south of Nablus. The officer, who suffered an abdominal injury, is
conscious and breathing. He was rushed to the Rabin Medical Center in
Petah Tikva.

It appears the
officer, who was in charge of safety, was shot by a soldier who was
manning a guard post at the time. The soldier, who did not take part in
the drill, apparently mistook the victim for a terrorist. As part of the
exercise, the officer pretended to be an enemy soldier.



The exercise was stopped and the Central Command chief ordered an investigation into the incident.





"There was a lot of confusion, and the fact that the exercise was
stopped prevented and even greater tragedy," one of the soldiers said.






The IDF Spokesperson's Unit referred to the shooting as
friendly fire incident. "The drill was stopped and the Central Command
chief ordered an immediate investigation into the circumstances that led
to the officer's injury," it said.



Last month, an IDF soldier collapsed
and died, during military screening tests in a southern base.




An initial medical examination into Yehoshua Hafetz's death revealed that the cause of death was a heart defect.

      I am sure IF THEY WERE STILL ALIVE both of them would agree with me but as you said "the IDF do not do these things on purpose" from killing children to using them as human shields

      well IDF has been shown to use human shields and if i recall correctly there was a case just dropped about a family of over 20 the IDF told to go into a house because the IDF wanted to use their house as a post during Operation Cast Lead later to shoot a laser guided missle at the house knowing the innocent family was inside. so it seems you are the misunderstaning one with ignorance. i am not saying the IDF only kills innocent ppl but they do use human shields and they knowingl More..
