Six Israeli soldiers were injured yesterday when their military vehicle flipped over while patrolling the area near the Gaza Strip border.

The Israeli army said the incident is likely to have been caused by human error. The soldiers were taken to Soroka Medical Centre in Beersheba for treatment.

Israeli 0404 news site reported that the Israeli army is investigating the incident.

On Saturday, four Israeli soldiers were injured when a bomb detonated as they tried to remove a Palestinian flag placed near the border fence between the Gaza Strip and Israel. Two soldiers were in a serious condition.
