A 20-year-old female IDF officer was killed and seven soldiers were injured Wednesday afternoon when a heavy lighting fixture collapsed on a stage set on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem. Eight people were detained for questioning by Jerusalem police.


Second-Lieutenant Hila Bezaleli was among dozens of soldiers who were on the stage rehearsing for next week's Independence Day ceremony.


An initial investigation revealed that a cable connecting the lighting fixtures was torn apart and as a result, the fixtures collapsed and dragged a concrete cube that weighs a few tons



Large police and emergency services teams arrived at the scene.


The victim's mother was also at the site at the time of the accident.


Bezaleli served as a Medical Corps officer at the Jordan Valley Brigade. It has been said she played a central role in saving human lives in various incidents.



"Her dream was to march at the lighting of the torches ceremony and she kept on talking about it," one officer said.



Thousands of people attended the funeral of Second Lt. Hila Bezaleli on Wednesday in Jerusalem's Mount Herzl.

      What wonders me is that when such tragedies occures in America,Europe,Russia,Africa,Egypt (The soccer fans tragedy few months ago) or the Pealestinians (like their horrible bus accident about 2 months ago) you will never even imagine somthing upseting to say. Never.

      Africa countries have their fucked up polices, so has Russia,Egypt,China,Turkey,Palestine and your own country, yet you will always make the seperation between personal human tragedies and general policies.

      But when it's More..

      illegal immigrants stole another peoples land and is oppressing them in any turn, sure i will speak my mind.

      i will continue to speak my mind.

      israel is a country built on lies and deception and is supported due to lies and deception.

      not surprising, the people that support israel the most have the most bias in their support for israel.

      i think you know which country this is.

      Lets start with you claim it is an illegal county. By what law do you base this on?

      Illegal Immigrants? Care to show me the law or anything to show they are illegal?

      The UN voted to create a Jewish State. That means the majority of nations voted in favor of creating Israel. Now deal with it. Israel is not going anywhere.

  • So goes the dangerous life of a soldier. Gotta expect accidents to occur, whether a Blackhawk malfunctions, Mortar goes off in your face, or the unfortunate incident of a radio station falling on you.
