Two IDF soldiers from the elite Duvdevan Commando Unit were injured by shrapnel during training Tuesday. The two were lightly and moderately injured after a grenade exploded during routine training at the Nachshon Base, near Ma’aleh Adumim in central Israel, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement.

One was wounded in his hands while the other suffered injuries to his lower limbs. They were treated by Magen David Adom paramedics before being rushed to Hadassah-University Medical Center in Jerusalem for further treatment. Both were fully conscious.

According to reports, the two soldiers were at the base’s firing range when another soldier kicked a grenade that had fallen onto the ground. It then exploded, injuring the two soldiers who were standing nearby. The military said that the incident was being investigated.
