IDF Col. Sharon Asman suddenly collapsed and died during a combat training drill at an IDF base on Thursday.

Asman, 42, has just took command of the Nachal Brigade on Monday. He was running when he collapsed and received initial medical treatment by the brigade doctor but was pronounced dead shortly afterward.

He is survived by his wife and two children. The IDF has launched an investigation into the circumstances of his death.

Asman has served in the IDF for the past 25 years and fought in Lebanon and Gaza. He was one of the first soldiers to enter Gaza during Operation Protective Edge in 2014 and was wounded shortly afterward but refused to be evacuated, instead leading his soldiers in the battle against Hamas. He later received a military award for his achievements during the war.

  1. This is a huge tragedy. May Hashem comfort the family.
    Why isn’t the first question “when did he have a covid vaccine?”
    The FDA and CDC both acknowledge miocarditis and blood clots as side effects. This could be the result of Israel’s irresponsible move to mass vaccinate without a safety profile on the covid vaccine.

  2. Could it be that a 42 year old in great healthy shape died “suddenly”?? Could it be perhaps be from this untested COVID ‘vaxx’, like so many other nebach who died from them?! May Hashem console his wife & kids. What a tragedy!
