Dagan is in stable condition three weeks after the surgery, Channel 2 reported on Saturday evening. Earlier this month, Dagan’s friend, former Israel Police asst.-chief Uri Bar- Lev, told The Jerusalem Post that his condition had improved.

“All of the people of Israel are praying for his full recovery. We all know his contribution to the security of Israel. We pray that he wins the battle for life like he has won all other battles,” Bar-Lev said.
