The Israeli soldier wounded in a terrorist attack in Haifa on Monday is in stable condition following eight hours of surgery.

A spokesman for Rambam Medical Center said the victim underwent a series of orthopedic surgeries conducted by three teams to treat serious injuries to his limbs.

The soldier was subsequently transferred to the hospital’s intensive care unit for observation.

The attack occurred near a naval base in the northern city of Haifa; a car drove into the 20-year-old soldier, after which the terrorist got out and attacked the victim with an ax.

Troops stationed at the base shot and neutralized the terrorist, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

The terrorist was identified as Wassim Abu al-Hoga, an Arab Israeli from Tamra in the Lower Galilee. Al-Hoga had a criminal record for illegally transporting people—presumably Palestinians—into the Jewish state, the Israel Police said in a statement.
