Rescue forces treated him and evacuated him by helicopter to Rambam Hospital in Haifa.

In June, an officer was injured from gunfire in a training accident which took place at the Tze'elim base in the south. The officer, who was accidentally shot by a soldier, was injured and was taken to Soroka Hospital in Be'er Sheva.
