Ashkenazi visits soldier wounded in Gaza clashes

IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi visited Sgt. Guy Elmakayes, who was wounded in a Friday’s Gaza firefight in which Maj. Eliraz Peretz and St.-Sgt. Maj. Ilan Sviatkovsky lost their lives.
“I saw Guy. He was in serious condition, but his condition is now improving,” said Ashkenazi. “The doctors are giving him superb treatment, and I’m pleased to see him recovering and feeling better. Guy told me that he already wants to return to his Golani battalion.”
