An IAF helicopter which was part of the prime minister's entourage lightly injured a homeless man while landing at the Knesset on Wednesday night, the army said. The helicopter reportedly had difficulty landing due to strong winds in the area. Immediately after the incident, two people sleeping in a tent within close proximity to the Knesset lodged a complaint in which they claimed to be injured as a result of the incident. An investigation found that momentum caused by the helicopter's propellers blew several objects into the direction of the tent. The IDF responded by saying that the landing was carried out according to procedure and that one person was injured.
