An Israeli naval commando was injured during a secret operation

From INN:

An IDF soldier has been critically wounded in a top-secret mission abroad, according to Channel 10 news. The soldier is a member of the elite Shayetet 13 naval commando unit.

Commanders who reported the incident did not give information regarding the mission, or the incident in which the soldier was wounded.

“These missions are very complex,” one commander explained. “They are planned with precision, and often include preparation in Israel.”

“What must be understood is that these are among the finest soldiers in Israel,” he continued. “These are brave fighters who know that they are going into the heart of danger, often far from the borders of Israel.”
May he recover quickly. I wonder what mission he was on and where. I guess we'll never know. Anyway, here's a video showing a bit of how the Shayetet 13 train and footage from one of the soldier's helmet cam during the Marmara raid:
