Israeli Soldiers Save Palestinian Lives after Car Crash (Israel Defense Forces)
(Daily Alert, Mar. 7, 2014)
A car accident in the Jordan Valley injured four Palestinians Saturday. Rescuers from the IDF’s 669 Airborne Rescue Unit evacuated two severely injured passengers and a two-year-old infant to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital by helicopter.
“Our rescue effort was very difficult because the vehicle fell into a wadi, and we needed to rescue the passengers on foot using stretchers,” said Jordan Valley Brigade Medical Officer Lt. Moran Gershoni. “We arrived at the scene within 10 minutes and then carried out our life-saving procedures on site.”
“We treat everyone, regardless of any differences, whether they are Israeli or Palestinian civilians,” she said.
