Officials at Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva say two victims seriously wounded in the terror attack in Elad are now in a stable condition.

Dr. Uzi Ben David, deputy of the neurosurgery ward, tells Channel 13 news that the two are still in a serious condition, but their injuries are no longer life-threatening.

Both victims underwent surgery last night and this morning, and they are currently on respirators and are sedated.

The two were struck in the head by axe-wielding Palestinian terrorists in the ultra-Orthodox city last night.
