Nineteen-year-old Liron Yisraeli was serving with her IDF unit at Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem, left under Israeli control despite a withdrawal from Bethlehem under the Oslo Accords, when a Palestinian attacker stabbed her in the neck. Liron fought back and disarmed the female assailant but remained in a coma in the hospital.
She has finally woken up and was visited by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Her Hebrew name is Liron bat (daughter of) Tali. We wish her a speedy recovery.
