The life of the soldier from the terrorist attack near Mevo Dotan, who was brought to Beilinson hospital in critical condition with a head injury, has been saved.

Beilinson Hospital said the medical team that fought for his life in intensive care managed to stabilize him and to bring him out of danger. "A team of intensive care, neurosurgery, and orthopedics specialists worked on him."

"His condition improved, and before the holiday the soldier was transferred to head injury rehab in moderate condition. The second soldier, most of whose injuries were orthopedic, was transferred to orthopedic rehabilitation."

In the ramming attack on the road between Mevo Dotan and Hermesh, Captain Ziv Deus, 21, and Sergeant Natanel Kahalani, 20, from Elyakim, were murdered. Deus was a platoon commander in the rescue division and a regular security driver from the Menashe Regional Brigade.

The IDF investigation of the incident revealed that the soldiers were standing next to a pillbox between olive groves and the village of Yabed in the area of Mevo Dotan in Samaria. The terrorist who drove the vehicle identified the fighters, veered from the road, accelerated, and hit them.

The terrorist who perpetrated the ramming attack, Ala Kabha, released from an Israeli prison last April. During his Shin Bet interrogation, he admitted that he intended to deliberately run over and kill soldiers.
