Shaare Zedek Medical Center announces that 53 days after being critically injured in an explosion in the Gaza Strip, Elisha Madan has been released from hospital and will continue his rehabilitation at home.

Madan was injured by a blast from a booby-trapped tunnel shaft next to a mosque in the Beit Hanoun area that killed four soldiers in early November.

The hospital says that Madan’s treatment in the hospital included multiple surgeries and treatments.

In a statement, Madan thanks the medical team for their round-the-clock care, saying, “There is no way I would be this healthy, happy and optimistic without you,” and calling them “the dream of every seriously injured person.”

“Thank you so much for saving my life,” he adds.
