The tragic incident joins a number of previous cases of deaths which occurred following strenuous activity in the IDF in recent years.

Approximately one year ago, Yehuda Suissa, a 19-year-old recruit to the Givati Brigade, collapsed and died during an intense training session just one day following his enlistment into the IDF.

Half a year earlier, a 44-year-old reservist collapsed and died during a training session at the Adam military facility.
