Ibrahim was seriously wounded in a vehicular assault on a military post near the town of Negohot in the south Hebron hills on May 14. The assailant, a 19-year-old area resident, was shot and killed by one of the soldiers on the scene, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

Ibrahim was evacuated and placed on a ventilator, ultimately undergoing numerous surgeries, including the amputation of one of his legs.
