BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli soldiers opened fire at a man who tried to infiltrate the Iron Dome compound in Eilat on Thursday, Israel's army said.

"There was a suspect that attempted to infiltrate the Iron Dome compound in Eilat. The soldiers reported that they called on the suspect to stop and fired warning shots in the air," an Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma'an.

The man, who is an Israeli citizen, was transferred to hospital to receive medical treatment. Israel's army is still reviewing the cause of the injury, the spokeswoman added.

Israeli news site Ynet reported that the suspect was "Arab," without providing further details.
