BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli soldier committed suicide by shooting himself near the border with the Gaza Strip overnight Thursday, Hebrew media reported on Friday.

Various news outlets reported that the soldier was found critically injured after he shot himself, and that army medical teams attempted to save his life to no avail. He was pronounced dead shortly after.

An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed the incident to Ma’an, saying the soldier was found dead at his base in southern Israel, and that a military police investigation had been opened.
