Israeli delegation returns from Japan

Tuesday, April 12, 2011 |  Ryan Jones

The Israeli army medical team dispatched to Japan in the wake of last month’s mammoth earthquake and tsunami returned home on Tuesday following two weeks of aiding the local population in the devastated northern regions of Japan.

During their stay, the Israeli team treated 220 people at a special emergency clinic built especially for the Israelis.

The Israeli team left behind the bulk of their medical equipment for local Japanese doctors to make use of.

Japanese authorities honored the Israelis in a farewell ceremony on Sunday evening. The team was highly praised by Japan for its professionalism and ability to rapidly adapt to the local situation.
