Six Palestinians were injured today in a severe accident between a taxi and a civilian car near the Etzion District in Judea & Samaria. Combined forces of the IDF (Zahal) were alerted, and rushed to the scene of the accident–including ambulances of the Etzion Brigade, IDF (Zahal) paramedics and Magen David Adom medics. Cpt. Aziz Ibrahim, Head Medic of the Etzion Brigade told us:

“The forces worked tirelessly, but unfortunately one of the injured patients succumbed to his wounds at the scene of the crash. One other, heavily injured, was brought to Israel for further treatment, while the other four people, who suffered light and medium injuries, could be treated on the spot.”

“Unfortunately, this kind of thing happens almost every day here. As medics we are always  loyal to the Hippocratic Oath and we help, evacuate, and take care of everyone. It does not matter to us whether the patient is Israeli or Palestinian.”
