The current conflict in Gaza is still only days old, but already at least one member of the IDF who was wounded in action has returned to the battlefield.

Col. Rasan Alian, commander of the Golani Brigade, was wounded in the current conflict, while fighting in Gaza. Although evidence of some of his injuries are still visible on his face, Alian was back with his unit on Tuesday, July 22.

Unlike the enemies of the IDF, such as the Hamas leaders who are currently in Qatar, calling in their orders to the low-level terrorists to remain in harm’s way, the IDF leadership demonstrates courage and love of his fellow soldiers, no matter what the rank.

Col. Alian is known not only for his bravery, but he was also the first Druse commander of the Golani brigade.
