An IDF soldier at an Armored Corps base in southern Israel, grabbed his personal weapon and a MAG heavy machinegun, arrived at a shooting ground near the base, and fired in the air. He was apprehended after negotiations.
An initial investigation of the incident by a Lt. Col. is currently being held in the base. When the investigation is concluded at the base, it will be continued by the Military Police and brought before the Judge Advocate General for evaluation and recommendation.
