Ofer Gamliel let out of jail to visit son hurt in Bat Ayin attack

Ofer Gamliel, serving a 15-year jail sentence for a failed bomb plot against an Arab girls school in east Jerusalem, was let out of prison Friday in order to visit his son, Yair, whose skull was fractured by an ax-wielding Palestinian terrorist in the settlement of Bat Ayin the previous day. Yair was recovering from his wounds and he was listed in light condition. On Thursday, Ofer refused to leave the Ayalon Prison since the Israel Prisons Service (IPS) rejected his request to be let out in civilian clothes and without a guard. However, on Friday, Gamliel accepted the IPS conditions and was escorted to the hospital hand-cuffed and in prison garb. Shlomo Nativ, 13, was killed in Thursday's terror attack.
