A security guard at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s residence in Caesarea on Monday suffered mild injuries due to an accidental weapons discharge, the Prime Minister’s Office said.

The Magen David Adom ambulance service said it was treating a man around the age of 22 with a light injury to the palm of his hand.

Netanyahu himself was not in the area when the incident occurred.

The guard was taken to the Hillel Yaffe Medical Center in Hadera for treatment. The incident will be investigated in the coming days, the PMO said in a statement.
