Four IDF soldiers were injured Thursday morning when a IDF “Zeev” armored vehicle flipped over in the area near the Gaza Strip.

The vehicle overturned as it drove near Kibbutz Sufa in Eshkol Council. The soldiers were evacuated for medical treatment and the circumstances of the incident are being examined.

The accident comes on the heels a serious accident last week in which three IDF soldiers were killed and nine others injured on Highway 6 heading South, near the Nitzanei Oz interchange.

The dead are Sergeant Bar Yakubian, 19, of Netiv Hashayara, Sergeant Eshto Tespo, 21, of Petah Tikva, and Sergeant Shilo Siman Tov of Tzufim, who died of his wounds a few days later. All three were raised to the rank of First Sergeant after their deaths.
