Man attacked in Acre was teacher who went out to stop his students joining violence

The 37-year-old man attacked by Arabs in Acre last night was a high school teacher who went out looking for his students to stop them participating in the violence, Channel 12 reports.

Doctors at the Galilee Medical Center say the condition of Elad Barzilai has significantly improved though he is still sedated and on a ventilator.

Barzilai has already had one emergency operation for head wounds he suffered in the attack and he will require more surgery in the future, doctors say.
