רס"ן פואז משתחררדוברות המרכז הרפואי העמק

The team at the Emek Medical Center rehabilitation department said goodbye to Major Foaz Hussein, who was released after being hospitalized for 44 days after he was wounded fighting terrorists on October 7th in Kibbutz Holit.

Dr. Maor Mamon, the director of the Emek Medical Center, remarked: "Major Foaz is a source of inspiration for all of us. Anyone who met him and tended to him during his recovery period here at the Emek Medical Center fell in love with this determined officer, who saved many on the morning of the massacre before he was injured himself."

He concluded: "I am happy and proud that he left our new rehabilitation department walking on two feet."

Hussein, a tracker in the Paran Brigade, was seriously wounded during the first hours of the war: "I was hit in the legs by a volley of bullets when I got close to the terrorist. I was hit by three bullets. I fell, and I saw that the entire bone in my leg was broken," he recounted to Ynet after he was wounded.

He added: "Our forces pulled me next to a house and bandaged the wounded leg to stop the bleeding. And then they evacuated me in an armored jeep to the gate, they gave me morphine, and I woke up in Soroka Hospital."
