Soldier moderately hurt after stun grenade explodes in his hand

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

An Israeli soldier is moderately hurt after a stun grenade he was holding exploded in his hand earlier today, the military says.

According to the IDF, the incident occurred during “routine activity” in central Israel. (Though, the army often refers to the West Bank as part of central Israel).

The soldier was treated at the scene and then taken to a hospital, the IDF says.

The incident is being investigated.
