Seven Soldiers Injured after APC Overturns in Jordan Valley

Seven Nahal Brigade soldiers were injured Sunday morning when an armored personnel carrier (APC) overturned during a training exercise held near Kfar Adumim in the Jordan Valley. 

All seven soldiers were lightly injured and taken to Petah Tikva's Beilinson Hospital for treatment after being examined by medical personnel.

The IDF has also launched an investigation into the circumstances of the incident. 

This is the fourth incident in a series of military-related training accidents in recent months. 

In early May, an APC overturned near Matsok Orvim in the Golan Heights, seriously injuring one soldier, and lightly wounding three others. All four were transferred to Ziv hospital in Tzfat for treatment.

Days before that, a soldier was lightly injured when he fell from an APC during a training exercise in the Jordan Valley. He was evacuated to Beilinson Hospital for treatment.

In another case, five soldiers were lightly injured when their army patrol car overturned near Kibbutz Erez, along the border with Gaza.

The four were given first aid treatment at the site and taken to Soroka Hospital in Beersheva and Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon for further treatment.
