Actor Idan Amedi's Recovery Release from Hospital After Gaza Strip Incident

Israeli actor Idan Amedi, known for "Fauda" is set to be discharged from the hospital on Tuesday, according to a statement shared with local media.

Amedi, 35, sustained severe injuries while serving in a reserve combat engineering unit in the Gaza Strip about two weeks ago.

An explosion left him unconscious for several days, resulting in shrapnel injuries to his eye sockets, jaw and neck.

Following his release from Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer in Ramat Gan, Amedi is expected to begin home rehabilitation.

Originally scheduled for Monday, a press conference addressing Amedi's rehabilitation and future plans was canceled.

The cancellation followed the announcement by the Israel Defense Forces of three soldiers being killed in fighting in the southern Gaza Strip.

Best known for his role as agent Sagi Tzur in the Netflix drama "Fauda," Amedi joined the series during its second season seven years ago.

Amedi is not only an accomplished actor but also a popular singer with five albums to his credit.
