Against All Odds: Surviving an Anti-Tank Missile in Gaza and Recovering to Fight On

Serious Injury in Gaza Leaves Him Temporarily Blind

Ron and his team had been operating in the Gaza Strip for almost two months when they faced their most dangerous mission yet. As they navigated a difficult area in Gaza City, an anti-tank missile managed to penetrate their compartment, narrowly missing Ron’s head.

Despite the severity of his injuries, Ron remained hopeful and focused on recovering quickly to return to his team. He was taken to Billinson Hospital where Prof. Rita Ehrlich, a surgeon at the hospital, performed emergency surgery on his eyes to remove shrapnel and prevent further damage.

After weeks of being unable to see and undergoing several surgeries, Ron’s vision gradually improved. He credits the skilled medical team for saving his eyesight and is grateful for the opportunity to continue fighting alongside his friends. Now recovering at home, he eagerly awaits the day he can rejoin his team in combat.

As he reflects on his journey, Ron acknowledges the support of his family, friends, and medical team who have stood by him throughout his recovery. Despite facing challenges such as constant gunfire and dangerous situations, Ron remains determined to return to the battlefield and continue serving his country.
