Dozens of residents of the Gush Etzion region of Judea took part on Friday morning in a joint run on the Derech HaAvot course, and joining the run was Tomer Ditor, the jogger who was stabbed while running in the region just this Tuesday.

Ditor was running outside the town of Neve Daniel when an Arab terrorist stabbed him and fled the scene; the terrorist has yet to be captured. The horrific attack was captured on security cameras, showing how Ditor was stabbed in the shoulder and moderately wounded.

After a miraculously short recovery period in the hospital, Ditor was back on his feet and on Friday morning joined the runners at exactly the point on the course where he was stabbed.

"We are thankful for the miracle that Tomer is running here together with us," said Gush Etzion regional council head Davidi Perl, who took part in the jog.

"Despite the attempt to place us behind barriers, we are not submitting to the terror and continue together with Tomer in our routine lives, and of course in joint runs of men, women and children in the breathtaking views of Derech HaAvot in Gush Etzion," he added.

"This is the normalization of life in the Gush and that's our victory. The people of Israel lives."
