The IDF paratrooper who shot the teenage Palestinian terrorist responsible for the City of David gun attack in January returned to his unit for the first time on Wednesday since being hospitalized after the incident.
Nadav, of the 202nd Paratrooper Battalion returned on an emotional occasion as his comrades troops had just completed their march to the Western Wall.
The IDF officer and his father were wounded by 13-year-old Mahmud Aliyat as they were walking home from Shabbat prayers on Saturday morning near the City of David archaeological site in Jerusalem.
While his father, 47, was suffered moderate wounds, Nadav was severely wounded but managed to shoot back and wounded his attacker.
Some six weeks later, Nadav was filmed accompanied by friends and family as he reunited with his unit at the Western Wall.
