The IDF – not for the first time and not for the last time – has saved the life of a Palestinian Authority Arab, this time a motorcyclist who suffered critical injuries in a crash with a mini-bus near Shechem, otherwise known as Nablus.
Israeli soldiers and rescue teams routinely treat Palestinian Authority accident victims, a fact that is virtually buried by the constant media image that the IDF mistreats Arabs.
The mini-bus crushed the motorcycle, and IDF medics treated the unidentified victim, who suffered from severe abdominal bleeding. After administering first aid, they rushed him to BeilinsonHospital in Petach Tikvah, adjacent to Tel Aviv, where he was operated on.
He now is in stable condition.
Medics from Jewish communities through Judea and Samaria frequently come to the aid of Arabs, who usually are aided by the Arab Red Crescent rescue service.
However, Magen David Adom ambulances often come under a firebomb and rock-throwing barrage when trying to help Arabs.
