Posted By : Devick Sellam July 26, 2018

Magen David Adom treated and evacuated three Israelis stabbed by a 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist in the West Bank settlement of Adam, northeast of Jerusalem.

The victims included a critically wounded 31-year-old man and a 58-year-old man in serious condition. MDA evacuated both to Hadassah Hospital in Har Hatsofim. A third male victim was lightly injured and transported to Shaare Zedek Medical Center. The terrorist, who had climbed over the perimeter fence in order to enter Adam, was shot dead at the scene by the lightly wounded man.

MDA EMT Orel Assulin was among the first responders who arrived immediately at the scene.

“We provided lifesaving treatment, including bleeding control, and the two most severely wounded individuals were quickly evacuated,” he said. “During the evacuation one of the injured’s condition deteriorated and we performed CPR.”
