I must have missed this story in the news.
Last Sunday night, a Palestinian woman arrived with her 12-day-old baby girl to an IDF post in the Binyamin region of Judea and Samaria. The infant was having trouble breathing and needed immediate first aid. IDF Home Front Command soldiers stationed at the post treated the baby, stabilized her and then called an ambulance, evacuating her to a nearby hospital in Ramallah.
“The baby was suffering from severe breathing difficulty and was simultaneously vomiting,” explained the battalion doctor, Cpt. Dr. Michael Findler. “We provided her with initial medical care and succeeded in stabilizing her condition.”
Commanders from the Binyamin Regional Brigade explained that Palestinians in the region know that if they have a life-threatening emergency, they can to come to the IDF post for assistance.
‘Every Palestinian in the region knows there is an IDF post permanently stationed here that will provide aid,’ said Cpt. Dr. Findler. ‘Such incidents have become commonplace.’
