The condition of right-wing activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick, who was shot Wednesday night in a terrorist assassination attempt outside an event at the Menachem Begin Heritiage Center in Jerusalem, has reportedly taken a turn for the worse.
Glick was shot in the chest and abdomen. He had extensive emergency surgery late yesterday, and was slated to have another surgery today. He was listed in serious but stable condition after the first surgery.
But Glick’s condition has reportedly been downgraded to critical.
People are asked to pray for Yehuda Yehoshua ben Rivka Ita Breinda to have a full and speedy recovery.
The man who allegedly shot Glick, a Palestinian who is a former Israeli security prisoner, Mu'taz Hijazi, died in a shootout with an anti-terrorism Border Police unit in East Jerusalem early this morning. A second Palestinian who allegedly helped Hijazi carry out the attempted assassination was arrested. Both men were allegedly members of the Islamic Jihad terrorist group.
Glick is a leading activist for complete Jewish control of the Temple Mount, which while the holiest site in the world for Jews, is also holy to Muslims, who control the Mount, where the Al Aqsa mosque is located. Jews have only very limited access to the site.
Israel Police closed the Temple Mount to all Jews, Muslims and tourists immediately after the Glick’s shooting for security reasons.
