Cpt. Karin Yamin has been serving as an IDF Medical Officer in Judea and Samaria’s Etzion Brigade for around seven months. Today’s emergency was just one of many that she handles on a regular basis.

“For the soldiers in my unit, saving lives is a priority. Whether the patients are Israeli, Palestinian, Christian or Druze, we take care of them all in the same way. We also provide equipment to Red Crescent ambulances, especially when we see that they lack medical equipment,” Cpt. Karin said.

“It’s important for me to emphasize that cooperation between the IDF and the Palestinian Authority goes in both directions.” Karin added that the Palestinians treated this morning were very satisfied with the care they received.
