Benjamin Netanyahu's Son Hurt in Army Training

Avner Netanyahu, the youngest son of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, reportedly was injured in a training accident.

The accident during his Israel Defense Forces basic training on a military base in southern Israel was not serious, according to reports.

He was treated at Barzilai Hospital, in Ashkelon and is expected to be released to recuperate at home on Tuesday. His father and mother, Sara, arrived at the hospital Monday to visit their son.

Avner Netanyahu is training in a combat unit, though he had been offered a position in the army’s media corps.
