Tsarnaev, 19, was wounded in his throat, Kevin Ilan Tabb of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, told Ynet.

“Unfortunately, I have had a lot of experience with these types of injuries after years of treating people injured in terror attacks in Israel,” Tabb added. “We have a few Israeli doctors in the emergency room, and the director of the ER is also Israeli. But most of the physicians at the hospital are not Israeli, and they functioned exceptionally well.”

Tsarnaev has reportedly not been interviewed by police after 24-hour manhunt which left Bostonn on lockdown.

Tsarnaev was captured Friday night hiding in a winterized boat in the Boston suburb of Watertown, Mass., and was hospitalized in serious condition.

He was wounded during an early Friday morning shootout with police that killed his 26-year-old brother, Tamerlan, who also had been a suspect in the April 15 marathon bombing.

Tabb is a board member of Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital in Jerusalem, where he studied medicine and completed his residency.
