An Israeli farmer found a skeleton dressed in a military uniform and boots in a bunker in a minefield in Israel’s Upper Galilee, near Kibbutz Snir, on Wednesday morning. It is unclear as to whether the remains belong to an Israeli or a Syrian soldier, but it is appears that they date back to one of the battles that took place many years ago in the area.
The agricultural worker, Yossi Egozi, said, “I found the skull in one spot, and the skeleton next to it.” He immediately alerted the authorities upon making the discovery. The removal of the remains will be a careful operation, given the dangerous surroundings. The bones will be taken to the Abu Kabir Forensic Institute for study.
