The IDF officer seriously wounded during a predawn raid earlier this week has opened his eyes and is breathing on his own, says the Ramban Medical Center in Haifa.

Yesterday the soldier, a member of the elite Duvdevan Unit, began to wake up and began slowly being weaned off of the machines helping him to breathe.

He was one of two soldiers to be seriously injured in raids in the early hours of Sunday morning. His father said his son was hit by nine bullets during an exchange of gunfire in the town of Burqin outside Jenin in the northern West Bank.
