Tefilos Requested for Erev Shabbos Terror Attack Victim

The family and friends of the seriously wounded victim in Friday’s vehicular ramming attack in Gush Etzion, call on the tzibur to be mispallel on his behalf.

Even Ezer [ben Malka] Holaring, 35, a resident of Kiryat Arba and the father of five, sustained serious head injuries when the terrorist rammed his vehicle into him. Even Ezer is a member of the Bnei Menashe community. His wife, Miriam, appealed to the tzibur from the hospital, calling for tefilos on his behalf.

He suffered intercranial bleeding as a result of the attack and was taken into emergency brain surgery shortly after his arrival in the trauma unit of Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital. His condition is described as very serious/stable. He remains in a medically induced coma connected to a respirator.

The second victim of the terrorist, injured a few minutes earlier in a nearby ramming attack, David Ramati, 70, was less seriously wounded. Ramati described seeing the Palestinian terrorist, “with a big smile on his face,” driving toward him at some 60 miles an hour. Ramati said he had a pistol and tried to shoot the 17-year-old driver, but he was hit by the car before he could.

Ramati told Channel 12 Radio host Niv Raskin on Sunday morning Rosh Chodesh Kislev that following his hospitalization on erev Shabbos, he received a phone call from an official in the American Embassy inquiring into his well-being. He wished him a complete recovery and praised his quick response, which prevent more serious injuries.

The embassy spokesman noted he was calling on behalf of US President Donald Trump, who remains concerned for the safety of American citizens. Ramati pointed out that while President Trump had the embassy call to inquire into his well-being, the Israeli prime minister did not do the same.

Doctors hope to possibly release Mr. Ramati later in the day Sunday.
