A Chabad rabbi shot in what authorities have called a likely terrorist attack in southern Russia was discharged from an Israeli hospital.
Rabbi Artur Ovadia Isakov, 40, was released from Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikvah on Sunday. He had surgery to repair his liver there.
Isakov was airlifted to Israel after being shot July 24 as he exited his car and headed into his home in Derbent, in the predominantly Muslim Republic of Dagestan near Chechnya.
Authorities have said it was likely a terrorist attack by Muslim extremists.
Isakov, a father of four, told Israeli media he intends to return to Derbent as soon as he is well.
Upon he thanked communities and individuals throughout the world for their assistance, Chabad.org reported.
