An Israeli soldier died from head wounds sustained inside a tank during an exercise in the Golan Heights, the army said in a statement on Wednesday.

Sergeant Eitan Fichman, a 19-year-old resident of the southern city Be’er Sheva, died during activities in the “Nafach” training zone after efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.

Fichman was promoted to the rank of sergeant after his death, the Israeli army said in a statement, adding: “The [army] shares in the family’s grief and will continue to accompany it.”

Major General Amir Baram, the commander of Israel’s Northern Command, held an initial debrief at the location of the incident. After the initial review, Colonel Shaul Israel, commanding officer of the 205th Brigade, was appointed to lead a team of experts to investigate the circumstances surrounding the event.

The findings will be presented to the Chief of the General Staff.

Israel’s Military Police also launched an investigation and their findings will be transferred to the Military General Advocate Corps.

The army said the soldier’s family was notified and that information on the funeral will be released later Wednesday.
