IDF: 2013 recorded as year with fewest suicides of soldiers

Published: 01.01.14, 17:14 / Israel News

The IDF Personnel Directorate reported a 50% reduction in the number of suicides among soldiers in 2013 - seven cases compared to 14 in 2012. Thus 2013 has become the year in which the fewest suicides were recorded since the establishment of the IDF in 1948.

 

A senior official of the department said that the investigation of the seven suicide cases showed no direct correlation between the circumstances of the service and the cause for suicide. He added that the majority of those that took their lives were men. (Yoav Zitun)
