Aaron Yehuda Imergreen, the yeshiva student wounded in the Hamas terrorist shooting in the Old City of Jerusalem last month, was released from hospitalization at Shaare Zedek Medical Center on Sunday and has now been transferred to Sheba Medical Center for rehabilitation, ynet reported.

Imergreen was shot in the Hamas terrorist attack that killed South African immigrant Eli Kay, and had arrived at the hospital in serious condition, unconscious with multiple gunshot wounds.

He was hospitalized in the ICU and hooked to a respirator and had to undergo a series of surgeries before finally regaining consciousness.

"We admitted Aaron as he hung between life and death," Shaare Zedek trauma unit director Dr. Alon Schwartz said, according to ynet. 

Imergreen has a long path of rehabilitation ahead of him amid his return to a normal life.
