Thanks to the Sheldon Adelson Internet web site Israel Hayom we have this interesting item.
An ENTIRE Israeli elite combat unit laid low by food poisoning. As to the source of the malady this is not clear.
I am sure there is an extensive and wide-ranging investigation occurring into this incident.
"250 paratroopers get food poisoning after Friday night meal"
"Soldiers in the 202nd Battalion were to spend the weekend on the Golan Heights • Some noticed that the chicken served for dinner smelled bad"
"Some 250 members of the IDF Paratroopers 202nd Battalion came down with food poisoning after eating Friday night dinner at their base this past weekend."
. . . .
"The soldiers said they were served a dinner of sautéed chicken, and some noticed that the chicken smelled bad."
"Nevertheless, they ate what they were served. Later they suffered from severe stomach aches and diarrhea. The battalion commander and other officers also came down with the same symptoms."
Traditionally and historically sickness, disease and illness killing more soldiers than battlefield casualties. About two-thirds [2/3] of those deaths during the American Civil War attributable to disease!
Water in particular perhaps the greatest killer of soldiers. NOT having enough water to drink or drinking contaminated and bad water!
AND REMEMBER, ALWAYS WASH YOUR HANDS AFTER GOING TO THE BATHROOM!
