IDF soldier hit by live fire during training incident

An IDF soldier in the Paratroopers battalion was moderately injured as a result of accidental gunfire during a training incident with live gunfire late Monday night.

The soldier was hit by a bullet during the training exercise, which took place on a military base in central Israel.

 An IDF spokesperson reported that the soldier was evacuated to the hospital for medical treatment.

The circumstances of the incident will be investigated by the IDF.

Last month, Corporal Evyatar Yosefi, also in a Paratroopers battalion, was killed after being swept into a river during a training exercise in northern Israel. Two other soldiers in the battalion had to be evacuated to the hospital during the training due to hypothermia.
