YERUSHALAYIM (Hamodia Staff) -

The IDF released for publication the name of the soldier murdered in Sunday night’s terror attack in Be’er Sheva: Sgt. Omri Levi, Hy”d, 19, from Sdei Hemed in central Israel.

The levayah for Levi was held in Sdei Hemed at 4:00 p.m. on Monday afternoon.

Levi served in the Golani infantry brigade and was on his way to his base when a Bedouin-Israeli terrorist shot and killed him at the Be’er Sheva Central Bus Station.

Four other IDF soldiers were wounded in the attack, one seriously and three lightly. Several civilians and police officers were also injured in the terrorist attack.

Meanwhile, on Monday, the 13-year-old boy who was critically injured in the Pisgat Ze’ev stabbing last week regained consciousness and began breathing on his own. Hadassah Medical Center reported the boy was communicating with hospital staff and his family, Arutz Sheva reported.

“His condition was considered most serious when he arrived at the hospital and today we are optimistic about his chances,” Dr. Ahmed Eid, head of the Department of General Surgery at Mount Scopus, said.
