Elazar, 19, and Dovi, 16, two brothers wounded in the shooting attack in Jerusalem, are reunited after being hospitalized this morning.
“My two brothers were together last night, waiting for the bus… Elazar helped the woman get on the bus, and my 16-and-a-half-year-old brother Dovi was still at the bus stop when the shooting started. Both were hit in the shoulder and were evacuated,” Yair, the teenagers’ older brother, tells Channel 13 news.
“When the incident happened, Dovi called himself and told us that they were both hit by a bullet, that he was conscious, and that he was quite well. It calmed us down. He even had time to say that Elazar was helping to treat the wounded at the scene, because he is an MDA paramedic,” he says.

“We were shocked and immediately left for the hospitals where they were hospitalized. Now Dovi has arrived and we have reunited,” Yair says from Hadassah Mount Scopus hospital.
Yair says the doctors told him that if the bullet had hit Elazar a few centimeters over, “he would not be alive.”
“It is a real miracle,” he says.
