The victim of the Huwara shooting attack is in moderate to serious but stable condition, the hospital treating him says.

According to the Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikvah, the man is sedated and on a ventilator with gunshot wounds to his head and shoulder, but his condition is not considered life-threatening.

His wife, who was in the car with him during the shooting, was not hit by gunfire.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he is praying for the “wounded hero” who succeeded in shooting the terrorist attacker, adding: “Whoever tries to harm Israeli citizens — will bear the responsibility.”
