Soldier Remains in Critical Condition

Soldier Yoni Ben-Yishai remains in critical condition Wednesday morning. Ben-Yishai was run over by a tank Tuesday during a training drill.

An initial investigation has found that the wounded soldier and his comrades were sleeping in an area being used during the drill. They had authorization to sleep there – authorization that was apparently given in violation of orders.
