A graduate from a New Jersey yeshiva and who now is a paratrooper in the IDF suffered moderate injuries to his head when a retaining wall fell on him in the war on terror in Gaza, the New Jersey Jewish News website reported.

He was identified as Sgt. Moshe Hirt, 21, from Edison, New Jersey and a graduate of the Rabbi Pesach Raymon Yeshiva

Hirt underwent surgery and was released to his aunt’s house in Beit Shemesh, west of Jerusalem.

His parents flew to Israel to be with him, and his mother told New Jersey Jewish News, “He has been in Gaza from the beginning. We are very proud of him, but this is how we raised him. We were not surprised when he told us he was going to Israel to study and join the IDF. We support him 100 percent.

“We are concerned about him and all of Israel… He said he had seen a lot of bad things, but he is strong, like all our soldiers.”

Earlier last week, Baltimore-born Jordan Low suffered smoke inhalation when he was helping his unit escape from a burning building that had been hit by a Hamas rocket.

His father said, “He’s my hero. My two boys have learned to think about others before themselves.”
