Three Sent to Hadassah After Second Jerusalem Terror Attack of the Week

Monday, Nov 10 2014

A second this week, a possible terror attack by car hit IDF soldiers in Gush Etzion. Three have been sent to our hospital in Ein Kerem.

Talgany Yalahum, 23, is surrounded by his four adoring, pampering sisters and his mom in the orthopedics department of the Sarah Wetsman Davidson tower's fifth floor. A graduate of Netiv Meir Yeshiva and a resident of Maaleh Adumim, he was among the soldiers dispatched to secure the turbulent area outside of Kafr Al-Arub in Gush Etzion, where he was run over in a terror attack, the second in one day last week.

Three doors down in the SWD Tower, Hadii Rabah, the Druze border guard officer who was run over in the vehicular terror attack in northern Jerusalem, got emotional when he was visited by Linda Hillel, Tobay Chapter President from Long Island.

"Please tell the women in Hadassah that I would not be getting better as I am without this amazing hospital. I thought for a while that I was going to die. Now I'm doing so well. My family is able to be with me here in this magnificent building" He, too, was surrounded by loving family—parents and his brother and fellow border guards. They passed out coffee in tiny cups that they prepared at home in their Galilee village and brought in thermoses.

Moshe Yonatan Aharoni, also run over in Gush Etzion, continues to be in serious condition in the ICU.
