The Israel Defense Forces are investigating what led to the collapse of a soldier, Thursday evening, during a training trek on the Palmachim Beach, just south of Tel Aviv. The probe is focusing on dehydration or heat stroke.

The soldier was taken, in moderate condition, to Asaf Harofeh Hospital, next to the Tzerifin military base. Channel 2 Television reported, Friday morning, that the soldier's condition had improved.
