Earlier today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Nehemiah at the hospital. “Niv is a hero,” Netanyahu said after the visit. “He just charged at the terrorist, who was full of hate and armed with a knife, with his bare hands and stopped him. He prevented [what could have been] a large tragedy.”

“We are all praying that he will recover,” Netanyahu added. “I saw him with his family and it just warms the heart. I’m wishing him well and hugging him in the name of the entire State of Israel.”
