An IDF soldier is in critical condition after being injured by a terrorist during an arrest operation in the West Bank. The Times of Israel's Michael Bachner reports that the soldier was hurt after being hit in the head by a stone block:

An IDF soldier from an elite unit was critically wounded early Thursday morning when a stone block was thrown at him at a Palestinian refugee camp in the West Bank, the military said.

The piece of marble was thrown from a third-story rooftop at a group of troops who were conducting an arrest raid in the al-Am’ari refugee camp near Ramallah, the army said.

The block hit the soldier in the head, and he was taken to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital in critical condition.

The soldier served in the elite Duvdevan Unit, which operates extensively in the West Bank...

Please pray for this young man's swift and complete recovery, as well as for God's protection over the brave men and women who protect Israel and her people.
