There has been an improvement in the condition of leading Jewish Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick, who was shot Wednesday by an Arab would-be assassin.

The Director of General Surgery Unit in Shaare Tzedek Hospital in Jerusalem, Prof. Petachya Reisman, said that Glick is still not out of danger but improving.

Glick arrived at the hospital in very serious condition after being shot three times near the Begin Center.

He underwent operations for several hours, for injuries in the chest and stomach, and part of his lung was removed. His situation stabilized and he underwent another operation on Thursday.

Security forces killed an Islamic Jihad terrorist, 32 year-old Mu'taz Hijazi of Abu Tor in southern Jerusalem, on Thursday morning, on suspicion that he was the person who shot Glick. 

The Jerusalem Magistrate Court decided Thursday, following a session that was attended both by police and parents of the shooter, that the funeral of Mu'taz Hijaz will take place tonight between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m., and will be limited to 45 people.

The judge also directed the police to bring the family Hijaz's body at 10:00 p.m., prior to the funeral.
