Last victim of Second Lebanon War finally walks out of rehabilitation hospital

Anatoly Starijevski, a civilian wounded critically during the Second Lebanon War's rocket and missile attacks on the North almost two years ago, is the last person from that war to be discharged from the Beit Loewenstein rehabilitation hospital in Ra'anana. He was wounded in his head and other parts of his body on July 23, 2006 when a missile landed in the Carmel Ulpinim factory. He was rushed to Rambam Medical Center for treatment and then to Beit Loewenstein when he was still unconscious. Starijevsky regained consciousness there but it became clear that his wound caused the paralysis of his two legs. However, after many months of rehabilitation by doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and communications specialists, he improved so much that he was able to walk out of the hospital on Wednesday - on his own two legs.
