    According to The Jerusalem Post, the soldier was swiftly evacuated to Saroka Hospital in Beersheba after receiving first aid in the field for his minor injury.

    The Al-Mayadeen Lebanese news site has published a video purportedly showing footage of sniper fire hitting an Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) soldier in his helmet.

    "An initial investigation in the field found that during a riot, which included rock throwing, a terrorist opened fire at IDF troops. A bullet struck the helmet of an IDF officer who was stationed at the scene," an IDF spokesperson said, as quoted by the The Jerusalem Post.
