Due to medical treatment, Glick to stay in hospital

Contrary to an earlier announcement, Shaare Zedek Medical Center announced on Friday that due to ongoing medical treatment, Temple Mount activist Yehudah Glick would not be released from hospital on Sunday.


Glick was shot four times by 32-year-old Islamic Jihad member Moataz Hejazi after giving a lecture at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem last month. Hejazi was killed in a police shootout at his Abu Tor home hours later.


Glick, 49, who has advocated for increased Jewish prayer rights on the Temple Mount, has since become the face of the movement, which has heightened tensions between Arabs and Jews.


On Thursday, the Home Front Command issued a 48-hour warning decree that Hejazi’s home will be destroyed.


On Wednesday, the IDF Engineering Corps demolished the east Jerusalem home of the terrorist who killed a three-month-old baby girl and a woman from Ecuador last month when he rammed his vehicle into a crowd of people in the capital.
