A military vehicle that overturned at a base of the Israel Defence Forces in the south of the country led to the injury of 2 soldiers on Monday, an announcement by the IDF spokesperson said.
One IDF soldier was moderately wounded and another soldier was lightly injured, they said. The wounded were evacuated to the Soroka hospital for medical treatment.
Sharon Edri, a spokesperson for Soroka said both casualties were evacuated in a helicopter and that two of them are suffering from dry bruises. One was treated in the trauma room and was hospitalized in the second surgical department.
COLlive.com was told that one of those soldiers is Yehoshua Avraham Frisch, a Lubavitcher from Coral Springs, Florida, who is serving in a training unit.
“We don’t know the condition yet and are awaiting an update,” a family member said.
The public is asked to say Tehillim for Yehoshua Avraham ben Chaika.
Update: Miraculously, the soldier has been undergoing tests in the hospital and is in much better condition than originally thought.
“Thank G-d he has no broken bones, and no internal bleeding, so he should be able to be discharged from the hospital in the next day or so,” family members said.
