Last weekend, a dramatic rescue took place in Israel which you will undoubtedly not have heard about.
It will simply not have hit the headlines around the world.
But it is a true story.
Israeli personality Chanoch Daum posted on Facebook after Shabbat a short video with this amazing story (trans. by Mizrachi):
Shabbat afternoon. A short while after the TV stations broadcast another piece against ‘settlers’ swimming in Palestinian springs, the volunteers from the Megilot Rescue Unit (‘settlers’, God forbid) left their Shabbat tables and went out to Wadi Kelt to rescue a 23 year old Palestinian man from Shchem (Nablus) who fell from a great height. They provided him with medical care at the scene and carried him on a stretcher in the searing heat to the ambulance which took him to the hospital in Jericho. A small story filled with co-existence and magic, therefore there is little chance it will make its way to your television screens.
In a post on their Facebook page, the unit wrote that the family of the rescued man wished to thank the rescuers who went out on Shabbat to help him.
