Condition of IDF officer wounded in Jerusalem attack said to worsen

An Israel Defense Forces officer injured in a shooting attack on Saturday near Jerusalem’s Old City has seen a deterioration in his medical condition, his parents said Tuesday evening.

The officer, whose full name is not being published, was said to be in serious but stable condition and is sedated and on a ventilator, according to Hebrew media reports.

“Today it turned out that Nadav’s situation is more complex than we thought,” his parents said. They added that in-depth examinations were being carried out, “and this means that Nadav’s rehabilitation period will be longer than we expected and that we need to pray a lot.”
