Worsening of Itzik Saidian’s condition: After a few days in which there was an optimistic atmosphere around the bed of IDF disabled Itzik Saidian, following an improvement in his medical condition, this morning (Wednesday) his family announced that his condition had worsened again. Let him recover and pray for his well-being.
Last week, his sister, Leah Saidian, announced that his condition had improved significantly and he regained consciousness – 5 months after setting himself on fire at the offices of the Rehabilitation Department in Petah Tikva, in protest of the treatment he received. “We did not expect it to happen so fast, because we were told it would happen towards the end of the month. About a week ago they started lowering the doses and slowly there were all kinds of reactions with the eyes or fingers of the hands, slowly he responds. He managed to give me a kiss with The lips, “she said.
His brother Avi told the High Court today: “He is still in danger of death. I restricted entrances and visits. “We are asking not to come to the ward in the next month and stop with the phones. It is clear that the will is good and he was moved by the gesture, but he is making every effort and it is burdensome for him.”
As his condition continued to improve in recent days, Itzik was visited by a long line of people and celebrities, including Defense Minister Bnei Gantz, MK Bezalel Smutrich and singer Aviv Geffen. “The fact that Itzik woke up and called is a miracle, and Lydia his mother asked that we all continue to pray for his healing,” Smutrich wrote on Twitter.
