Shooting victim Chava Mark regains consciousness

The seriously wounded victim of Friday's deadly drive-by shooting attack south of Hevron regained consciousness early Sunday afternoon.

Chava Mark was left in critical condition in the shooting, which killed her husband Michael and injured two of their children who were traveling with them in the car at the time.

She has been in a medically-induced coma ever since, as doctors fought first to save her life, and then to stabilize her condition. She underwent a serious of major operations for multiple gunshot wounds to her upper body. Her 15-year-old daughter, who also sustained gunshot wounds in the attack, is hospitalized with her in moderate condition.

On Saturday night, doctors announced that Chava's condition had stabilized, but cautioned the full extent of her injuries were not yet known. 

Chava awoke from her coma as the funeral procession for her husband makes its way from their hometown Otniel to Jerusalem's Har Hamenuchot cemetery – via the site of the deadly attack which claimed his life.

She is not yet aware of her husband's death.

The attack occurred late Friday afternoon, as the family were making their way down Route 60 in the Hevron Hills region. 

The Arab terrorists who carried out the attack overtook them, raking their car with gunfire and causing it to flip, killing Michael and wounding all three passengers. Some 20 bullets were fired at the innocent family in the attack.
