An Israeli soldier was killed in a mine explosion in the southern Golan Heights.

The soldier was taking part Tuesday in a minefield-clearing operation, according to the Israel Defense Forces, and was killed when an old anti-tank mine exploded. Two other soldiers were injured.

The mine reportedly was cleared and marked before it exploded. The explosion was believed to be a technical malfunction.

Maj. Gen. Guy Zur, the chief of the Ground Forces Command, appointed a team to investigate the incident, according to the IDF.

The mine-clearing operation is part of ongoing military operations and is not related to recent tension on Israel’s border with Syria.
