When a terrorist drove his car into two young soldiers at a bus stop in Ofra this morning, Magen David Adom paramedics rushed to the scene from Jerusalem and Ofra — one of our 16 emergency medical stations in Judea and Samaria. A 19-year-old victim received emergency medical treatment and was evacuated to Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital. A second victim, Sgt. Elchai Teharlev, z”l, was pronounced dead at the scene. We extend our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.
This attack comes after three people were stabbed in Jerusalem’s Old City on Saturday, and Israeli officials issued a warning of a possible increase in violence around Passover.
Operating from 143 emergency medical stations throughout Israel, as well as from their offices and homes, Magen David Adom’s 27,000 paramedics, EMTs, and first-responders are prepared to respond to emergency medical calls every hour of every day — from routine daily emergencies to acts of terror.
