Shoshana Dagani, from Itamar, has been identified as the IDF soldier who was injured in the Arab city of Tubas Tuesday night by shrapnel that penetrated her brain at a spot that her helmet did not cover.

Shoshana is hospitalized in intensive care at Shiba Tel Hashomer Hospital in severe yet stable condition. She serves in the mixed-gender Arayot Hayarden Battalion.

Eliyah, Shoshana's brother-in-law, told Channel 12: "The commander told us that during the operation, they shot a heavy barrage at her. Shoshana covered one of the soldiers, and she was hit, she just covered her team, it's crazy."

Her sister, Yehudit, added and spoke about Shoshana's situation: "She's fully awake. Right now, the doctors' concerns are that shrapnel penetrated her brain and left dust. She needs a lot of prayers. She will undergo surgery to remove the shrapnel."
