Three IDF soldiers from the “Alpine Corps,” who specialize in working in harsh winter conditions in the Golan and the north, were injured on Tuesday during a drill. One soldier is in moderate to serious condition, while the others are in light to moderate condition. All three are in Rambam Hospital in Haifa.

An initial investigation indicated that the soldiers fell several meters into a ravine. They were rescued by helicopter, with soldiers working for several hours to extricate them.
