Since a horrific terrorist attack at an Israeli supermarket earlier this month, Stand for Israel has kept you abreast of the victim's recovery. Now, Ynet News' Rotem Elizera reports that Niv Nehemia, whose place of employment was said supermarket and was wounded in the stabbing attack, is being released from the hospital after an astounding recovery:

Niv Nehamia, who was seriously wounded earlier this month in a stabbing attack at a Shufersal supermarket in Yavne—where he works as a deputy manager, was discharged Sunday from Kaplan Medical Center after a significant improvement in his condition.

"I feel a little better," said Nehamia upon his release. "I know that I'm going to have a difficult recovery, but we'll get through it. I thank the Creator who gave me these days and saved me from this situation, and also the doctors who labored (to help me recover—ed)."

Nehamia, 43, a father of five, was stabbed on August 2 by 19-year-old Ismail Ibrahim Ismail Abu Aram...

"I remember quite a few things from that day, and I also saw the video that slightly refreshed my memory," Nehamia said. "I was excited when important people came to visit me, but I was even more moved when people I did not even know came.

"(It seemed that) my case drew a semblance of unity among the people, gave them some resilience. If that's in fact what it managed to do, then I'm glad (for my part in it)."
