Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick's condition continues to be on the mend, Glick's wife Yafi stated Monday night.

"Yehuda has had a very significant and important surgery today," Yafi stated to Channel 2, noting that she and the rest of Glick's family was waiting to see how he recovered before "ceasing anesthesia and artificial respiration."

In the meantime, Glick is still in serious condition in Jerusalem's Shaarei Tzedek hospital and is in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).   

Yafi, on thanking the people for their support, added that Glick's recovery is a "miracle" and that "we believe that our Father in Heaven, who has helped us until now, will also help Yehuda make a full recovery." 

Yafi also deflected making comments on revelations earlier Monday that the Israel Police knew full well that death threats were being made against her husband, but apparently had - and still have - chosen to ignore them. 

"This is a difficult time and tensions are very high," she stated. "I feel that I don't have the chance to deal with these issues. Right now, I am not there yet."

"We have a Father in Heaven who hears every prayer, and it is important to invest our energies there," she added. 

Glick - who founded and heads the LIBA Initiative for Jewish Freedom on the Temple Mount - was shot in the chest on Wednesday night outside the Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem, after the shooter pulled up in a motorcycle or scooter, and confirmed Glick's identity before shooting. 

He had been speaking, minutes before being shot, at an event for Jewish rights on the Temple Mount that had hosted leading religious figures and MKs. 

Glick has undergone numerous surgeries since then, although Shaarei Tzedek staff said earlier Monday that he "will likely return to full function" after the latest procedure. 

Meanwhile, hundreds gathered in Jerusalem's Safra Square on Saturday night to pray for Glick's recovery, and his son Shahar was allowed to pray for his father's recovery on the Temple Mount on Monday, according to an eyewitness.

On Monday morning, Galei Yisrael radio's Kalman Libeskind played back tapes of police conversations proving that the police, in fact, knew of death threats made to Glick, but chose to ignore them. 

After the revelation, the police continued to deny that Glick's complaints - 16 of which were filed from 1995 to 2014 - had included death threats at all, despite the audio evidence.
