An officer who sustained serious head injuries Tuesday night when several bombs blew up near the Palestinian village of Hizme is in stable condition after undergoing 12 hours of surgery Wednesday.

Prof. Nardi Caspi, head of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department at the Hadassah Medical Center at Mount Scopus, Jerusalem, said the officer arrived at the hospital’s trauma room with injuries from shrapnel.

A lengthy surgical procedure, which was carried out by a multidisciplinary team, resulted in the surgeons successfully removing the shrapnel and treating the breakages, Caspi said.

“He is out of the surgery room, and he has been taken to the intensive care unit. At the moment his condition is stable, and he is not in a life threatening condition,” Caspi added.
