An American serving as a lone soldier in the IDF is showing signs of improvement, after suffering serious injuries in a terrorist ramming attack in the capital, hospital officials reported Monday.

Ori Hamond, a lone soldier from San Diego who is serving in the IDF, was injured in a terrorist ramming attack last Thursday in Jerusalem.

Hamond suffered serious injuries in the attack, while 13 others suffered lesser injuries.
