Four terror victims are still currently hospitalized at Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem, the hospital announced in a status report on Thursday night.

Ganedi Kofman, who was stabbed by an Arab terrorist two weeks ago outside Cave of Machpelah in Hevron, is still hospitalized in very serious condition and is in intensive care. He remains in life-threatening danger from his wounds.

Kofman's wife has asked the public to pray for the recovery of Ganedi Chaim ben Raayah-Rachel.

The victim suffered several knife wounds to his upper body, and arrived at the hospital in critical condition with no blood pressure.

Dr. Ofer Merin, director of Shaare Tzedek's trauma unit, said at the time of his hospitalization that "the stabbing wounds hit his heart, lungs and other organs in the stomach."

Aside from Kofman, two people injured in last week's car attack near Jerusalem’s Chords Bridge are still hospitalized in fair condition, and are steadily improving.

Finally, the man seriously injured in yesterday’s stabbing attack at Yafo Gate was transferred Thursday from the ICU cardiothoracic surgery ward and is in stable condition.
