Last week, Stand for Israel reported on the IDF officer who was seriously injured in an explosion north of Jerusalem. Today, Arutz Sheva's Uzi Baruch reports that the soldier's condition has improved:

The condition of the IDF officer, who was seriously wounded in a bomb explosion on Tuesday evening at the entrance to the village of Hizme, north of Jerusalem, is improving.

The officer is being treated in the ICU at the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem, and, as of Thursday evening, is listed in moderate and stable condition. The hospital said he is fully conscious and recovering following surgery.

Tuesday’s attack occurred when the officer spotted suspicious objects during a patrol on the road leading to the village of Hizme, and one of them exploded. A subsequent investigation revealed that the suspicious objects were pipe bombs that were placed by terrorists on the road.

Please continue to pray for this young man's recovery, and for God's hand of protection over the IDF and the people of Israel.
