Seven IDF soldiers were rushed to hospital in Jerusalem on Sunday after inhaling smoke caused by a fire on a nearby army base.

The fire erupted in Ofrit, a base that lies in the eastern part of the capital.

A spokesperson for Hadassah University Medical Center on Mt. Scopus said: "All of those being treated were exposed to smoke during a fire. The injuries sustained are light. They will be treated with oxygen and will undergo a battery of other tests in the emergency room."
