By Benjamin Flowers: The Belize Defense Force (BDF) says that it is conducting a thorough investigation into an incident yesterday when a soldier was shot in the buttocks at the Valentin Conservation Post along the Belize/Guatemala western border.
The incident occurred around 3:30 p.m. and the soldier, who was shot to the upper left of the buttocks, was taken to the Western Regional Hospital where he is in stable condition and awaiting further medical assessments prior to surgery.
“At this time there is no medical indication to suggest that his wound is life-threatening,” the BDF said.
The BDF added that the investigation will be done in collaboration with the Belize Police Department to ensure transparency.
The Force also committed to maintaining vigilance during patrols to keep the country’s territorial integrity and sovereignty.
