Nytt

Her er en nyhet vi garantert ikke får presentert i norske gammelmedier. Like ved bosetningen Itamar på Vestbredden, der fem medlemmer av den jødiske familien Fogel ble massakrert for noen dager siden, reddet israelske soldater livet til en nyfødt palestinsk baby. Soldatene var på kondolansebesøk hos slekt og venner av familien Fogel da en palestinsk barselkvinne fikk behov for øyeblikkelig hjelp:

Just as IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz arrived in Neve Tzuf to offer his condolences, a Palestinian cab raced towards the community’s entrance. In it, soldiers and paramedics discovered a Palestinian woman in her 20s in advanced stages of labor and facing a life-threatening situation: The umbilical cord was wrapped around the young baby girl’s neck, endangering both her and her mother.

 The quick action of settler paramedics and IDF troops deployed in the area saved the mother’s and baby’s life, prompting great excitement and emotions at the site where residents are still mourning the brutal death of five local family members.

They know we have a skilled medical team here, and in any case of accident or injury they arrive and we help them,» he said.

Lokale palestinere oppsøker ofte de israelske helsearbeiderne for å få hjelp, selv om noen av dem feirer når israelere blir drept:

They know we have a skilled medical team here, and in any case of accident or injury they arrive and we help them,» he said.

The paramedic noted that on the day of the Fogel massacre, settlers saw fireworks and celebrations in nearby Palestinian communities, but added that the local medical team is committed to assisting anyone in need.

 «Two years ago, we also made sure to treat a terrorist who attempted to place a bomb on the road and was shot by soldiers,» he said.

 Palestinians from the nearby village of Nabi Salah gathered around the paramedics along with the new grandmother and could not hide their joy.
