Soldier Wounded from Mortar Fire's Condition Deteriorates


The medical condition of a soldier seriously injured last week by a mortar shell near the Kerem Shalom crossing has deteriorated significantly Thursday.

First Sergeant Mordechai Yamin, 22, who serves in the Combat Engineering Corps, was seriously wounded Thursday near Gaza. He was on pre-discharge leave, and about to complete his mandatory service, when he went to his unit's base in the Eshkol region, in order to sign off on his military equipment.
