“He was provided medical assistance directly at the Butmir camp in Sarajevo,” said Danka Capáková, spokesperson for the Slovak Defence Ministry, as quoted by the Sme daily. “He was then transported to the hospital where he died.”

The operation in Bosnia and Herzegovina was Pavlovský’s third foreign mission. He previously served in two missions in Afghanistan, Sme wrote.
