Anger in Israeli hospitals. Injured Hamas terrorists are treated alongside Israeli victims. Israeli family members of the injured and hospital staff were surprised by the insensitivity. Soldiers have transported captured Hamas terrorists to Israeli hospitals for medical treatment. Israel’s Health Ministry warned of possible acts of revenge by civilians against Hamas terrorists. Health Minister Moshe Arbel made it clear to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that no injured terrorists would be treated in state hospitals. What does this have to do with charity?

Thousands of Israelis who were attacked in the south on Shabbat morning or sustained injuries from rocket attacks in the southern cities were absolutely shocked to see surviving Hamas terrorists under heavy guard alongside them receiving the same treatment. This was in contradiction to statements by the Ministry of Health, which made it clear to the government that wounded terrorists would not be cared for in hospitals. In a post, Yuval Perl talks about his cousin, who was seriously injured by a bullet in the back during the terrorist attack on the Nova music festival and has since been treated in Soroka Hospital. Then a Hamas terrorist was brought into the same room. “How is that possible? Help! I’m on reserve duty. Who can help me?”
Health sources say Israel’s Defense Ministry insisted that injured terrorists be accommodated in Israel’s hospitals. It led to a number of outbursts of anger from Israeli citizens. Hospital security personnel were told to be careful not to retaliate against the families. If there is any unrest, they should call the police immediately.
In one of the hospitals, Israelis reported a military ambulance, accompanied by security forces, stopping at the entrance and Israeli soldiers transported two wounded terrorists on stretchers to the intensive care unit.
אירוע חריג בביה״ח בדרום: אמבולנס של חיל הרפואה מלווה באבטחה כבדה פונה לביה״ח תוך כדי שהוא מוסתר, ואחד החיילים מפנה את הנשק על אותו מפונה. החיילים שהביאו את אותו פצוע סיפרו שמדובר במחבל שנתפס בישראל, והוא צפוי להיות מאושפז לצד המטופלים הישראלים שנפצעו קשה ע״י אותם מחבלים ארורים. pic.twitter.com/EbkhVm9g1o

Tweet: An unusual incident in a hospital in the south: A medical corps ambulance accompanied by heavy security forces is on its way to a hospital when one of the soldiers points a gun at the person being evacuated. The soldiers who brought the injured man said that he was a terrorist captured by Israel and that he was expected to be taken to the hospital along with the Israeli patients who were seriously injured by these damned terrorists.
In such moments, anger comes quick and Israelis curse the Palestinian terrorists who, just a few hours earlier, had only one intention: to shoot Jews. And now they are being treated by Jewish doctors and nurses. Yesterday, Israelis attempted to break into Tel Hashomer Hospital in Tel Aviv. They are angry that a Hamas terrorist who was wounded in the brutal attack on innocent Jews in Be’eri is now being treated there. Can any of you imagine a reverse situation, whereby Jewish victims are treated alongside Palestinian terrorists in Palestinian hospitals?
A number of such cases are being heatedly talked about on Israeli social networks. “Israel is at war and in war you have to behave like you are in war. Injured terrorists have no place in our hospitals!” Some wanted to know where these terrorists were being treated in order to lynch them. The outburst of anger is understandable. Sophie wrote, “I’m ready to help these terrorists so they can meet their 72 virgins as soon as possible.” “Such a decision is madness!” “With the terrorists you only have to speak Arabic (i.e. be brutal).” “It crushes the soul.” “We have to kill them all.” “I am a hospital nurse and if I am asked to treat a terrorist, I will refuse. The doctors are obliged because they have sworn an oath, but I have not.” In this case, I can well imagine that the hospitals will use Arab nurses and probably Arab doctors, too.
Israel’s Health Minister Moshe Arbel announced that his director general had spoken with the director general of the Defense Ministry to provide medical treatment for terrorists at Shin Bet facilities rather than state hospitals, which only serves to further inflame an already furious public.
