An Israeli soldier has died after a device exploded in a bomb shelter in northern Israel, killing one person and wounding seven others, Israeli military officials said on Monday.
The military said the soldier, a 20-year-old lieutenant, was found at a remote location at around 4:00 a.m.
(0500 GMT) near the northern border fence between Israel and the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.
The blast sent a large cloud of dust into the air and caused a severe explosion, the military said.
The Israeli army has deployed a team to the site to investigate the cause of the explosion.
Israel has a large number of active and potential nuclear bomb shelters along its border with the Palestinian territories, which borders a Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip and which Israel has declared a “closed border”.
