Officers with Israel’s Border Police this week provided emergency medical assistance to a Palestinian man who collapsed during prayers at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron.
The Israelis responded immediately after learning the Arab man had lost consciousness, possibly due to dehydration.
Paramedics with the Border Police unit on duty administered first aid while a Red Crescent ambulance made its way to the scene. The Israelis managed to stabilize the man before transferring him to the ambulance for further treatment.
“It’s not the first time that our soldiers and paramedics have provided medical assistance to Palestinian Arabs,” said a spokesman for the Border Police. “And we will continue to provide such assistance to every person, regardless of gender, race or religion.”
