Soldier beaten in Jaffa undergoes surgery, now in moderate condition

An IDF soldier viciously beaten last night by Arab rioters in Jaffa underwent surgery overnight to treat his serious head injuries, Tel Aviv’s Ichilov hospital says.

The medical center says three top neurosurgeons were called in to conduct the complex operation and managed to stop the heavy internal bleeding.

He regained consciousness and is now in moderate condition, the hospital says.

The 19-year-old remains hospitalized in an intensive care unit.
