The IDF’s spokesperson’s office would only confirm that the soldier was injured whilst travelling in a jeep near the Sinai Desert, but refused to say in what circumstances.

However, several sources have claimed the soldier was hit by gunfire when the military disrupted an attempt by smugglers to infiltrate the border.
