An IDF officer who sustained serious head injuries earlier this month when a bomb blew up near the Palestinian village of Hizme was released from the Hadassah Medical Center at Mount Scopus, Jerusalem on Monday after making a recovery.

The officer, Shahar Roditi, is now in good and stable condition, the hospital said, adding that it would continue to care for him during day visits in the near future.

Earlier this month, the officer under went 12 hours of surgery after the blast.

Prof. Nardi Caspi, head of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department at the Hadassah Medical Center at Mount Scopus, Jerusalem, said at the time that he arrived at the hospital’s trauma room suffering injuries from shrapnel and broken facial bones.

A few days after the blast, security forces arrested two suspects for allegedly planting the explosives, adding that the remainder of the investigation was under a media ban.
