A combat soldier in the elite unit "Raven" paratroopers unit was injured today (Sunday) during an operational patrol, when the doors of his armored vehicle were closed on his fingers.

Part of the soldier's finger was cut off. He was treated by military medical teams and taken to the hospital for further treatment.

Before the evacuation to the hospital, a paramedic attempted to ease the soldier's pain by injecting him with morphine. However, the paramedic held the syringe upside down and injected himself by mistake.

The paramedic quickly realized his mistake and injected the soldier properly.
