An Israeli military officer who was seriously wounded in last Sunday’s blown special forces mission inside the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip was released from Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba on Friday.

In Sunday’s incident, another IDF officer — Lt. Col. M — was killed. Six Palestinian terrorists, including a local Hamas commander, also lost their lives in the exchange of fire that erupted after a group of elite Israeli soldiers conducting an undercover mission were exposed deep in enemy territory.

A doctor at Soroka said the wounded officer, after undergoing a complex surgical procedure and being held in an intensive care unit, was sent home on Friday in “good condition for rehabilitation.”
