Further proof, if you still need it, that the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) is the most humane army in the world…
Things like this occur on an almost daily basis here in Israel…And I am darned proud of it…
Early this morning, IDF soldiers helped a Palestinian woman give birth to a
baby inside a military ambulance.
Reprinted from IMRA.org.il
The woman, who lives in the Jordan Valley, called for medical assistance
around 2 this morning. An IDF medical crew, consisting of a paramedic, three
medics, and the Deputy Commander of the Valley Brigade, Lt. Col. Shalom
Eisner, were called to the area. Since the area was unreachable by
ambulance, the woman was brought to the vehicle on a stretcher, and during
the drive on Route 90 prematurely began to give birth.
The paramedic, Sgt. Gilad Nesher, began delivering the baby; a difficult
procedure considering there was no birthing equipment in the ambulance. The
situation was further complicated by the baby initially not breathing.
However, after an hour of intensive CPR the baby began breathing
The mother and child were taken in an IDF helicopter from the 669 Search and
Rescue Unit to the Hadassa Ein-Kerem Hospital and are currently resting
