Two IDF Soldiers Killed in Friendly Fire R”L


BDE: The 2 IDF soldiers who were killed in the friendly fire incident last night are named as Major Ofek Aharon, 28, and Major Itamar Elharar, 26.

The two commanders from an Israeli Commando Brigade were patrolling around the Nabi Musa base near Mitspe Yeriho when they identified a suspected and opened fire in the air. Another soldier thought the shooting was an attack, and returned fire, killing the officers.

“The officers were killed after a mistaken identification led to a friendly fire incident,” the IDF said in a statement.

Describing the deaths as “painful and unfortunate,” IDF Spokesperson Ran Kochav told the Kan radio broadcaster on Thursday morning that the military would investigate the circumstances.
