An IDF soldier was injured in an apparent training accident at the Paratroopers Brigade training base in central Israel.
The soldier was taken to a hospital in moderate condition, according to the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.
He was reportedly shot during a live-fire company-level exercise as part of the final stages of his grueling four-month basic training period.
The army said it has launched an investigation into the incident.
The accident comes a month after Sgt. Evyatar Yosefi of the Paratroopers’ reconnaissance battalion drowned in an overflowing riverbed during a navigation exercise in northern Israel.
