Ilana and Moshe Shevach, the parents of Rabbi Raziel who was murdered last week in a terror attack near Havat Gilad, on Thursday evening visited at the hospital the two Yamam officers who were wounded in the operation in Jenin to capture the terrorists who murdered their son.

The family thanked the officers for the capture of the terrorists and the elimination of two of them, and wished them a speedy recovery.

"We prayed that there were no casualties [among our officers]," said the bereaved father Moshe Shevach, "but even a light wound saddens us. We wish you a speedy recovery, in the name of the family, in the name of the entire people of Israel, we hope you will soon leave this place and return to your fellow officers."

Commander N., the commander of the Yamam counter-terrorism unit, told the families that "these guys worked hard all night. They were determined, it was very important for them to catch this terrorist squad."
