As for any cooperation with Red Crescent, he stated that the MDA is more properly dispersed as opposed to Red Crescent which is usually only stationed in the large cities. The MDA has ambulances that provide regional services based out of the settlements. Therefore if there is an accident near Shiloh, for instance, the Red Crescent will come out of Ramallah or Shchem, as opposed to the MDA ambulances which come from a nearby settlement and provide quick and immediate care. Red Crescent will arrive toward the end of the event and get involved only with the final evacuation. MDA and Red Crescent’s relationship is purely formal, with the civil administration acting as the middleman.
There are also many accounts of Arabs rescuing Israeli casualties, primarily after car accidents. We can actually discern a measure of cooperation in these instances.
