The soldier that was injured on Friday by a terrorist near Bet El has improved. He is fully conscious and communicates with his family, according to Hadassah Hospital in Ein Karem.

The IDF soldier, who has been identified as Naveh Rotem, was seriously injured after an Arab terrorist infiltrated into the IDF post adjacent to the town of Beit El. The terrorist snuck up on and attacked the soldier, and in the ensuing fight, the terrorist hurled a rock at the soldier from close range, injuring him.

The army reported that during the struggle, the terrorist was also injured, forcing him to flee. After being treated on the scene, Rotem was evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem in serious-to-moderate condition.

"Naveh wishes to convey to the people of Israel that we are stronger than our enemies and that he had a miracle and that he is alive," said a statement by the soldiers family.

"We would like to pray and do good deeds for the speedy recovery of Naveh Michael, son of Osnat Esther, with all the other wounded."

Meanwhile, the soldier wounded in Thursday's shooting attack at Givat Assaf continues to fight for his life after being shot in the head. He remains unconscious and in critical condition.

Friday’s attack is the latest terror incident in the Binyamin district of Samaria.

On Sunday, Hamas terrorists opened fire on a group of Israeli civilians at a bus stop next to the town of Ofra, just north of Beit El. Seven people were wounded, including a 21-year-old pregnant woman, who was forced to deliver her child in an emergency caesarian section as a result of the attack. The child later died as a result of the attack.

On Thursday, terrorists shot and killed two Israeli soldiers near Givat Assaf junction outside of Beit El. Two other Israelis were wounded in the attack.

Shortly afterwards, a terrorist driver rammed an IDF soldier in El Bireh, outside of Ramallah, injuring him. The terrorist was then shot and killed.
