Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
Thank you Jesus for protecting the survivors of the bus crash, and thank you for protecting the Palestinians who helped rescue the victims.
On Jan 26, a bus carrying Israeli passengers overturned and fell off a 70 meter cliff. A Palestinian family living nearby the road heard the crash and immediately set out in the pouring rain to rescue the passengers.
Captain Raviv is a cutie.
Capt. Sivan Raviv, a medical officer in the Binyamin Division, told Ynet that the family was the first to call emergency services late Friday night, and that their quick thinking saved lives. “They didn’t hesitate or stop to weigh things out. They saw that human lives were on the line. When we arrived at the site we saw the family members already trying to extract the injured parties and offer them treatment.”
This is from Ynetnews.
A squad of soldiers a few kilometers away were notified of the accident. They immediately split into two groups. One to pursue an armed terrorist, and the other to assist in the rescue operation of the bus crash victims.
At that very moment, the region’s complex reality was underscored when a few kilometers away from the accident infantry soldiers from the Kfir Brigade were in hot pursuit of an armed terrorist near the Palestinian village of Aboud, where two shooting attacks had taken place with a 24-hour period. When word of the accident reached them, the soldiers divided into two groups—one to continue the chase after the terrorist, and the other to go tend to those hurt in the accident. Once arriving on the scene, they worked together with members of the Palestinian family to help rescue the injured parties.
Shortly after the family called to report the accident, Magen David Adom, a fire fighting unit, residents from Ma’ale Levona and additional medical teams arrived, and together they managed to evacuate those injured to several hospitals within an hour and a half. “We didn’t give up,” said Sivan. “It was hard to carry those injured on gurneys through the mud, while we fell down, got back up and lifted them once more, until reaching the ambulances and the two helicopters belonging to Unit 669 (the IDF Combat Search and Rescue unit—ed) that were waiting for us nearby.”
“We realized this wasn’t a regular occurrence,” recalled Raviv. “The bus was turned over and completely destroyed. We couldn’t afford to miss any one. The bus was totally crushed. We weren’t thinking of anything but their quick extraction.”
