An Israeli national was killed Saturday in Indonesia, a country that has no diplomatic relations with Israel, while attempting to climb the summit of an active volcano.
Boaz Bar Anan, 37, was a resident of Tel Aviv and he is said to have entered Indonesia with a Portuguese passport.
The incident took place early on Friday morning in Lombok, where Mount Rinjani is located.
A local police officer said that Bar Anan reached altitude of 3,766 meters, and then fell to a slope at a depth of about 150 meters.
On Thursday, Bar Anan and two other tourists began their trek with a guide. The guide's wife told the Indonesian media outlets that according to the information she received, the Israeli took a selfie before he fell to his death.
The reports that reached the Foreign Ministry said that thus far, Bar Anan's body has still not been evacuated from the site, with evacuation operations meant to set out at 6am local time (11pm Israel time). The Israeli Consulate in Singapore is monitoring the operations.
"There have been several recent incidents of citizens entering countries using a foreign passport," the ministry said. "The authorities make it difficult and almost impossible to cooperate with us in relevant assistance."
On his Instagram account, Bar Anan posted pictures of several sites he visited in Indonesia - among them the Prambanan Temple, Kelimutu lakes, and Nusa Tenggara islands.
Only several days prior, Gil Banks - a 25-year-old from Caesarea - fell to his death while climbing the Cotopaxi stratovolcano in the Andes Mountains.
Rangers at the nature reserve near the volcano found the hiker’s body and documents, including his Israeli passport.
