To avoid civilian casualities, Israel prefers "feet on the ground" rather than bombing raids. During close quarter combat training, fell from a building and fractured his knee. The fracture led to tumors and eventually paralyzed his right leg. This is after Lidor had survived an ambush by Syrian rebels and terrorists who attempted to infiltrate Israel months earlier as well as a face off in the Golan Heights area with similar forces. He is still handicapped, his leg still paralyzed and he is in need of a full knee transplant. Lidor plays for the Israel wheelchair basketball league and does Paraolympic climbing.
Lidor was tattooed on October 11th, 2017 by artist Bob Tyrrell at Mike's Place in Tel-Aviv.
