Four IDF soldiers were slightly hurt Sunday when a jeep they were in overturned, near Ein Yahav, in the Arava region north of Eilat.

The accident occurred in the course of routine military activity.

Two soldiers were evacuated in ambulances to Yoseftal Hospital in Eilat, and two others were taken by helicopter to Be'er Sheva's Soroka hospital.

A soldier was killed and three others were injured when a jeep overturned in the Golan Heights in June. 

The soldier who died was Corporal Dor Jan, 19, of Rishon Lezion.
