An Magen David Adom (MDA) ambulance was hit by gunfire while driving in southern Israel, but the driver miraculously escaped harm.
The intensive care ambulance was traveling between Adora and Kiryat Gat, about 300 meters before the Tarqumiya checkpoint, When the engine heat warning light suddenly flashed on the dashboard.
The paramedic driving the ambulance decided not to stop the ambulance on the side of the road and instead continued driving cautiously to Kiryat Gat.
That decision that saved his life.
“When I arrived in Kiryat Gat, I stopped in a safe place, lifted the engine hood, and immediately identified a gunshot mark and saw the bullet,” the paramedic recounts.
“Only then did I realize that they had shot at me during the drive. The bullet was very close to the windshield, and it was a miracle that I wasn’t hurt.”
