"At 7:30 in the morning, I received a call from my son. He asked me how I was doing. Immediately, I realized that something had happened to him. Why would he call me in the morning to ask how I was doing? Thank God, his condition is not serious. He was wounded by shrapnel in his lower extremities and there's another fragment near his left eye."

The Tulkarm incident
Twenty-two years ago, the father was a victim of a terror attack in Beit Shean and suffered critical wounds which left him with a 95% disability.
"Terrorists entered our Likud Party branch - six were killed, and another 30 were injured," he said. "I spent three years in the hospital in critical condition. Even my brother was injured 40 years ago in the First Lebanon War. I simply thank God; we've experienced a great miracle that my son is still with us, and we pray that he will make it to his wedding."
