Laniado Hospital updated on the condition of the Border Police soldier who was evacuated in the morning during an operational activity today (Thursday) in Tulkarm, with his condition defined as serious, the soldier underwent a series of tests and underwent emergency surgery that lasted about six hours.

Senior and multi-professional team members from various fields participated in the surgery: surgery, orthopedics, and blood vessels. The operation took about six hours and upon its completion a few minutes ago, the fighter moved to the recovery room. Later, the fighter is expected to be hospitalized in a general intensive care unit.

The Commissioner of Police RN Yaakov Shabtai came to visit the fighter and his family members.

The director of the Vascular Department at Laniado Hospital, Dr. Anton Kabasha, said upon leaving the surgery: "This is nothing less than a miracle, the fighter sustained many shrapnel in his upper and lower limbs, with a real fear of damaging the arteries. Fortunately, not a single shrapnel hit the arteries. The senior department team performed a hybrid operation that included the exploration of arteries with open access and at the same time catheterization of blood vessels in order to make sure that there is no damage to the blood vessels."

The fighter's condition is now listed as serious but stable.

Earlier, Dr. Alon Nevet, the deputy director of Beilinson Hospital, reported on the condition of the other injured in the incident: "2 injured from the incident in Tulkarm arrived at the hospital's trauma room, one injured in a minor condition, the other injured in a serious condition and is now in the operating room. More updates will be sent later."

Meir Hospital said: "Two Mob fighters from the incident in Tulkarm were evacuated to the trauma room at Meir Medical Center in the morning. One is in critical condition and is now in the operating room where the teams are fighting for his life and the other is in mild to moderate condition being treated by the team in the surgical emergency room."
