Shadi Ibrahim, the 21-year-old IDF soldier who lost his leg after a car ramming attack in the south Hebron hill in the West Bank in early May, was released from Soroka Medical Center’s Intensive Care Unit after recovering in the hospital.

Ibrahim, who grew up in Sajur, a Druze village in northern Israel, recorded a video message from his hospital bed in Beersheba, letting everyone know that he was “all right” and thanking everyone for their support and well wishes.

“I came out of intensive care, now everything’s fine with me. I’m all right,” Ibrahim said after spending two weeks in the hospital.

On May 14, Ibrahim was seriously injured after a Palestinian drove into him at high speed near the West Bank settlement of Negohot near Hebron.

According to the IDF, the driver accelerated towards troops standing next to a military observation post outside the settlement in the Har Hebron Regional Council.

The 21-year-old soldier, who was treated in the field by Magen David Adom paramedics, was then evacuated to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba with injuries to his upper body, in moderate-serious condition. He was said to be stable and conscious at the time. Soroka’s spokesperson reported late Thursday that the soldier had undergone surgery and was suffering multisystem trauma, which eventually led to the amputation of his leg.

“I feel good. I know I lost my leg. I want to return to my soldiers. Nothing will break me,” Ibrahim said after waking up from surgery, according to Ynet.
