Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman wishes a speedy recovery for the IDF soldier critically injured during an arrest operation near Ramallah last night after a Palestinian dropped a marble slab on top of him from a three-story building.

“We view the incident with great severity,” Liberman tweets, adding that “it would not be long” until the assailant is apprehended “alive or dead.”
