Israeli doctors do not provide first-aid to Palestinians, IMEMC report


On Christmas Eve, an Israeli doctor said on his Twitter account that field Israeli medical crews do not provide treatment to what he called “terrorists” (Palestinians), International Middle East Media Center (IMEMC) reported.

The Israeli doctor stated that, in Hebron, he provided treatment to wounded settlers “but I did not provide any treatment to the terrorist although he suffered more serious wounds.”

According to IMEMC, the Israeli medic said he wanted to be clear in his message when he said, “to all who ask, when I got to the scene today in Jaffa Gate, I helped the wounded [Israelis], but not the hateful terrorist [Palestinian], although he suffered more critical wounds.”

In another Tweet, the Israeli doctor said “when you go to the site of a stabbing attack, and you realize that the victim suffered a serious injury, and the terrorist was shot and also suffered a serious injury, who do you help? Now you answer me.”

There have been many reports, some captured on video, showing Israeli medics ignoring wounded Palestinians, and leaving them to bleed to death, in direct violation of International Law, as reported by IMEMC.

Many Israeli medics also carry automatic machine guns despite the fact that whenever they operate in the Palestinian occupied territories many fully armed soldiers always accompany them.

Palestinian medics said in response to the news that such a statement by a medic, a person who vows to help any person who needs help, regardless of his faith, race, tone of skin or any other aspect, validates various reports regarding wounded Palestinians who bled to death while Israeli medics refrained from providing them with the urgently needed medical treatment.

The Israeli doctors distinguish the killed people using different colors for the plastic body bags: black for Palestinians and white for Israelis and settlers, because, as the head of Magen David Adom said “we need to distinguish between terrorists and Jews.”
