Sunday, July 23, 2006 |  by Staff Writer
A Lebanese woman injured in the Israel-Lebanon conflict was brought to the “enemy’s” side for treatment. The woman was transferred by Israeli forces from Maroun al-Ras, Lebanon to an ambulance waiting on the border. She was taken to a Safed hospital, accompanied by her son.

“The woman sustained an injury to the chest, most likely from a bullet,” said Dr. Shapira Calin. “She was treated by MDA crew members in the field, and is now in our trauma unit. Her condition is moderate to severe; we have not yet completed all of the requisite exams to determine her exact condition.”

It is unclear whether she was shot by Israel or Hizballah forces.
